MathML (or Mathematical Markup Language) is an application of XML customized for the transmission of documents pertaining to mathematics. The official Document Type Definition was created by the World Wide Web Consortium.

To give one example of the famous Euler identity $e^{{i\pi}}=-1$ in MathML:

There are programs available that convert TeX to MathML.

## no kludge available to display MathML source

I don't think there is any kludge whatsoever available to display MathML source in a PM entry, something which was for me trivially easy in a PM post.
