In the form proposed the math markup language is very awkward. One perhaps
will have to convert from LaTeX and then reedit MMML manually. Compare
LaTeX syntax to MMML:
LaTeX: (x+2)^2
MMML:
<MSUP>
<MROW>
<MF>(</MF>
<MROW>
<MI>x</MI>
<MO>+</MO>
<MN>2</MN>
</MROW>
<MF>)</MF>
</MROW>
<MN>2</MN>
</MSUP>
I don't want to type MMML, no way. It's ridiculous.

Nick.
