I looked into tests/mml3mml2js.html at your repository in the “google code”
and discovered that you also implemented the <mscarries> tag, which is
great!

A little bit out of topic, but just wandering whether exists a proper LaTeX
package to render “elementary math”.

Not as much as I'd like but you can use mml3mml2.xsl followed by
pmml2tex.xsl to get some tex
that is mostly OK.

But I just realised that perhaps you didn't mean using tex to render mathml
syntax but
rather a natural latex input syntax, not directly there is a package for
polynomial long division
and probably should make something that more closely models the mathml
constructs.

There is a demo of taking something like \longdiv{1123}{55} and doing the
steps in javascript and
generating with mlongdiv or an equivalent "expanded" mtable for mathjax to
render,
it wouldn't be that hard to do the same in latex.
