Here are some very old pages on the mozilla website that
use a lot of different MathML tags.

http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/start.xhtml
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/start-hebrew.xhtml
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/start-thai.xhtml
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/demo/basics.xhtml
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/demo/mfrac.xhtml
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/demo/mo.xhtml
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/demo/mtable.xhtml
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/demo/mspace.xhtml
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/demo/mmultiscripts.xhtml
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/demo/roots.xhtml
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/demo/extras.xhtml

I copied all the pages to
'https://eyeasme.com/Joe/MathML/HTML5/'
and made TWO COPIES of each file.
(ex: start.xhtml and start.html)

The files that end in '.xhtml' ALL validate at
'http://validator.w3.org/'
as XHTML 1.1 plus MathML 2.0

The files that end in '.html'
were HTML5-ized and checked for validity at
'http://qa-dev.w3.org:8888/'

I think all these files should validate as HTML5, since
the same files validate as 'XHTML 1.1 plus MathML 2.0'
(with very minor differences in the files to allow for
differences in the document types)

(I did NOT fix the factual or grammatical errors on the pages)

The results for HTML5 validation are:
https://eyeasme.com/Joe/MathML/HTML5/start.html
    OK

https://eyeasme.com/Joe/MathML/HTML5/start-hebrew.html
    OK

https://eyeasme.com/Joe/MathML/HTML5/start-thai.html
    OK

https://eyeasme.com/Joe/MathML/HTML5/basics.html
    problems with 'mtable' and the 'align' attribute
    problems with 'maction' and the 'selection' attribute
    problems with 'mfrac' and the 'numalign' attribute
    Major problems with the 'sematics' tag

https://eyeasme.com/Joe/MathML/HTML5/mfrac.html
    problems with 'mi' and the 'mathcolor' attribute
