I think you are out of luck. I had looked into it a few weeks ago. As far as I know no browser (atleast free ones) on Mac OS X supports MathML. An older version of Mozilla (1.3 I believe) worked. But anything later than that does not. I vaguley remember taht there is some kind of a font issue with the latest versions of Mozilla/Firefox. MathML support on Windows side is fine. Even in Firefox. 

I hope things improve on Mac OS X. Till then for cross platfrom compatibility, you will have to stick with HTML + images of math formulae.
