there are some i know of that offer mathml.  ttm, a relative of tth,
was mentioned at one stage but i don't know where it's got to; eitan
gurari, i'm fairly sure, still has a tex4ht mathml variant underway.

the disadvantage is that mathml support is not yet widespread in
browsers.  this is fairly remarkable, given how long it's been around,
but i sense that there's (finally) a will to progress with it.  the
problem of font support has been another barrier, but there's light
coming over that horizon, too.
