It displays beautifully in AdobeViewer. The problem is that the actual code for the formulae in the XHTML file looks fiendishly complicated. Still, there is hope that it can be done.
this is really good, just tested it! As for transaltion, there is a utility that converts .dvi files into svg, dvisvgm - in texlive it is implemented, and you simply use the command line. Problem is, the package converts the whole file to a svg image, so although the improvement with respect to pdf is really VERY noticeable, you still have a pdf like display (e.g. the page does not fit the screen), plus I could not scroll around it with adobeviewer after converting to epup (to do so, I inserved the svg file as image in a new blank file in sigil, and saved as epub). I did manage to open it into the webbrowser, but for some reason it would not go landscape mode (to see the file in landscape I first had to put the browser in landscape, and only then load the file) -here you can zoom greatly and scroll as you wish with the scrollbars, again making the file very readable, but the annotation capabilities are lost.

I've only experimented with a single page file.

To me, teh ideal is some routine exporting text to html and maths to svg, but I couldn't find it!
