[1] Relevant information I gathered:
Work by Volker Sorge 
Design Science creators of MathType joined forces with WIRIS, they released
ChemType (which is based on ChemML) 
CML Chemical Markup Language
Peter is one of the Authors, he may possibly participate.  No pressure.
Dave Cramer writes:
Has anyone looked at representing CML with custom elements? I expect the
rendering would get very complex, but finding gaps in CSS would be most
useful, and filling those gaps could be fodder for the Houdini project.
Dedicon has best practices for chemistry. I used google translate to view
the content at the link:
Stem Literature review
This page is a collection of relevant references on Science, Technology,
Engineering and Math, with a focus on domain-specific notation and
implications. It is part of RQTF's activity looking at accessibility and 
Domain-specific notation.
The reference list should not be considered complete or definitive, and is
likely to regularly undergo formatting improvement and reorganization to
the review and analysis process.
