True enough.  There is MathML and its offspring, ASCIIMathML, which are
probably worth looking at.


I have no idea if either one has backend support for presentation outside
the web, but if people are interested in this (probably within the docutils
scope) they probably should be considered.  ASCIIMathML in particular is
probably worth using now within even if you can't convert it to any other
format.  It's about as readable as LaTeX source.
