I would say MathML is not widely used because MathML doesn't work in HTML,
personally. If we made MathML work in HTML, possibly with rules that make
the syntax easier (by implying tags as I suggested earlier), then that
might well change, especially given that one UA already has extensive
and high-quality support for MathML.
