I'm working on doing exactly this, using John Plaice's Omega
to be the TeX engine that produces XML/MathML files,
to be referenced via HTML's <OBJECT> tags.
The current text+images in HTML will be the content of the
<OBJECT...> .... </OBJECT>, for existing browsers
that do not support MathML.

well, XHTML would be a reasonable aim.

You are welcome to try.
There are thousands of lines of Perl coding that encode the logical
structure of LaTeX environments and macros, to be re-expressed in
a more standardised form.
The bulk of the work lies in re-doing this interpretation.
Java is no better a language for this than is Perl or Python.
Besides, it would be better to join the Omega team, and use
a much faster, fully compiled system to achieve this aim.
Much of this work is done already.
Hope this helps,
