Yes things are coming along.  I think the Axiom project (a computer
algebra system) is going to use it in our web-browser interface, as a
bridge to MathML support someday.

Along those lines, you might be interested in my latest toy, which is an
update of my previous tiddlywiki+jsmath to include an interface to the
axiom system.

Untar it and run the script 'fifo-axiom' in the moz-axiom directory
created.  It will try to load the interface in firefox.  (If you have a
different browser, edit the script)

I have seen some rendering bugs that I haven't tracked down, I'll see if
they're fixed in the new version.
