PassiveTeX is quite delicate to get up and running. I suggest you make
sure you have the latest xmltex and the latest passivetex from
Sebastian Rahtz' site, and install them manually if necessary.

To the (great) extent that backward compatibility is maintained
between DocBook versions, you can use the 1.65.1 stylesheets with any
(later) version of DocBook. I use DocBook 4.3 with 1.65.1 with a
customization layer that, among other things, adds support for recent
additions to DocBook (<code> etc.).

This works for me, including equations.

FYI, I code my math as follows:

      <textobject role="tex">
          \pi_i = P(X_0 = s_i)
      <textobject role="html">
        <xi:include xmlns:xi="http://www.w3.org/2003/XInclude";

where the file "texmath-pii.xml" contains a MathML representation that
is generated automatically from the TeX math using ttm
(http://hutchinson.belmont.ma.us/tth/mml/) plus some perl hackery.
