And what does dblatex have to do with converting latex to MathML?

As you write it converts docbook to latex which is something like the opposite.

There is an open source piece of software called dblatex (NOT db2latex,

which is much older). It converts DocBook XML to LaTeX (or XeLaTeX).

We use it, but I don't know whether you can get it to pass LaTeX text

verbatim--maybe you can if you use an xslt processing-instruction. (If

you simply embed LaTeX commands as text, they get escaped, so they won't

be processed.)

There's a sourceforge site for dblatex here:

http://dblatex.sourceforge.net/

However, it doesn't seem to be up to date, as I know they're up to

version 0.3.5. There's a download site for the newer version here:

https://pypi.python.org/pypi/dblatex

Actually, the latest is also available from sourceforge, here:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/dblatex/

I think the discrepancy between the above link and this one has to do

with migrating from git to mercurial.

The developer is Benoit Guillon, and he can be reached through the

dblatex mailing list:

http://sourceforge.net/p/dblatex/mailman/dblatex-devel/

(with link to subscribe) He might be able to better answer the question

about how to embed LaTeX code to be executed.
