If the mathml code is to be farther filtered and one has full control
over the filter, I would go for the xhmlatex mode.  Otherwise, I think
the mzlatex mode is safer.

One of the main differences between the two modes is in how `rare'
unicode symbols are supported.  For instance, the xhmlatex mode
provides a single unicode symbol &#xFB00; for the ligature ffl;
mzlatex currently provides a triplet of characters for the ligature.
Once the ligature will be widely supported by browsers, mzlatex is
expected to change its behavior accordingly.
