WHATWG doesn't have a position on this -- different contributors have
different opinions, and no clear consensus is being reached as far as I
Personally I think the best way of demonstrating that no browser-native
support is required would be for someone to develop a specification for
mathematics markup using the microformats.org principles. If this
demonstrates that it really is possible to create viable math markup in
HTML and have it completely styled in CSS then that would be a good step
