Re: Math formula and accordian

Hi everyone,

since not many EPUB readers are capable of rendering MathML properly, 
it's always advisable to include fallback images via MathMLs 
@altimg-attribute. You can also add a textual fallback via @alttext.

There are several ways to create fallback images. We prefer to render 
MathML to TeX and create images with a TeX renderer. Feel free to use 
our OS library mml2tex for that purpose:

Kind regards,
