Please define "mediocre job at simple mathematics" and "substantial
modifications to CSS itself".
It would be interesting too your evaluation of the job that p-MathML can
do in practice (e.g. IteX outputs on Firefox, MSIE, Safari, and Opera) and
comparison of realistic mathematical markup can be done with p-MathML
cannot be done in HTML5. By realistic, I mean can be achieved in practice,
with current tools and browsers.
Since MathML does not fit into the WHATWG philosophy, I would aknowledge
information about your own solution to the problem of mathematical markup
on the web.
