Hello Jim,

@BES{x,y}, is that x is the unicode code point in hexadecimal notation, 
and y the TeX macro.

2115'h = 8469

That should be unicode symbol ℕ, ie \mathbb{N} in LaTeX, but I don't 
know how you make it in TeX, and you probably need to load some specific 

Concerning MathJax, I don't think that this would be the best joice for 
Texinfo, because MathJax is written in Javascript, AFAIK, but the 
Texinfo HTML compiler is written in Perl

There are some perl module that do the same as MathJaX, see 

However, I am not sure that they are as powerful as MathJaX (or maybe 
they are more powerful… )

An alternative for rendering equations from a PERL script would be to do 
system calls use pdflatex + preview + ghostrcipt to get a PNG picture 
that can be embedded in the HTML output.

Cool.  Thanks.  Good to know.
