Yes. Not very general purpose though is it?

Writing in \tex and mathml then using external programs.

I'd like a 'one off' call, which takes docbook + embedded mathml
(namespaced) and produces PDF for say, 80% of input.

With math and its history, I guess there will always
be some 'tweaking' wanted by some users.

I'm assuming that docbook => html with embedded mathl
is another route.
