Are you saying a tex to html with a good html reader for the e-reader would be an option? Even for complex formulas ?
I think we're close but not quite on the same wavelength here...
I haven't got to writing formulae yet ; ) Anyway... apparently everyone still writes their formulas in TeX (so I'll take the guess MathML still sucks), and converts them. What could we work with? I don't know, but I'd go for whatever wikipedia uses. They're obviously using TeX as formulae input and getting browser-ready output, and I know (just checked in fact) there are several output options.
Can "it" be run on e-readers? Even with a computer-in-the-middle approach (I assume this will be a necessary evil for quite a while), can the output be tweaked to be displayed on readers? That should be easier to test.
