See e.g. [1] Just to complete the circle, I should mention the use cases for html-inside-maths and html-inside graphics. As an example of the first consider a mathematics tutor with questions like 4/9 = ?/3 Where the ? is to be filled in by the student. This seems like a good use for a html input element inside maths content. As an example of the second, consider creating something like [1] or [2] where you want to use the features of the graphics language to rotate or filter html content (arguably these particular examples could also be achieved with enhancements to CSS).
