One correction. I should have said *alpha*, not beta.

It requires no other retrievals. It actually appears to be a
self-extracting zip archive, so unpack it in the directory you want it
to live in. When I unpacked it, I just double-cliked mozilla.exe and
it ran.

Not yet. I put part of a test suite online with proper namespace
declarations and so on, so the tests do render. But they are
technical and boring. For what it's worth, its at
http://www.webeq.com/~rminer/mmltests
I promised the Mozilla people I would try to create some further
documents to show off the MathML rendering, but I haven't done it yet.

It is a direct renderer.
