This works fine thank you, but this code is actually in
sub replace_init_file_mark

Just to raise another minor point, I think the ".MATH I" line in the
stylesheet has slightly the wrong syntax. It says "font-shape: italic",
when I think it should be "font-style: italic". Not that I would know, but
it makes the W3 CSS validator happy!

Very, very minor gripes in a great piece of software though! Thanks very
