Thanks, Wes.  I'm already using PlasTeX

It handles changes of category codes, which makes it over the top for 
what I want to do.  In addition it is a  fairly large complex 
application, and sadly it's not at all easy to use just a part of the 
code base.

There's been more discussion of this thread on comp.text.tex (which is 
where I set the follow-up to).
