Me again. After briefly looking through some options, it looks like
Word's equation editor (which is MathType) is the end of a wrong way
street for equations. Applications like the free TeXaide
<http://www.dessci.com/en/products/texaide/> can be used to convert from
Word to LaTeX, and similarly it looks easy to go from Word to MathML,
but nothing the other way that I could find.
So we have Word --> TeX --> MathML. Once again Word is a dead end it seems.
Hope that helps,
Please see <http://www.esm.psu.edu/mac-tex/> for list
guidelines, information, and LaTeX/TeX resources.
