You may also want to take a look at my backburner project
http://pmml2svg.sourceforge.net/.  I'd rate its output "pretty good"
(with teenage-TeX-trained eyes :-)).  Contrary to JEuclid (among
others), pmml2svg composes stretchy characters from component glyphs
instead of stretching individual glyphs.

The workflow is similar to SVGMath.

I am still dreaming of including it into my own workflow (at which point
it should move from "backburner" to "afterburner" :-)), but for now I
fear it is less well maintained than SVGMath.
