SVGMath is a Python library that works as a "MathML engine" by converting
MathML to SVG. 

The library comes with a command line script (math2svg.py) that replaces all
MathML markup with SVG in any XML file. You can execute this script with a
FO file as input, and then feed the result to a FO processor that
understands SVG.
