FYI, I use the FOP/Jeuclid combination to satisfy my XML+MML to PDF  needs. That way I can use MML directly or xinclude the equations as needed.

OK, thanks for the info. I'm happy to adjust the build rules to get this
working. So far I couldn't find any instructions on how this is done,
though. Do I need to process the original .fo file to substitute the
MathML by SVG, before I pass it along to the FO processor ?

Also, what are the issues that makes the MML->SVG->PDF only
"acceptable", as opposed to "good" ? Does this affect all equations, or
just specific expressions ?

Many thanks for the help,
