I only have HTML versions of my documents with <m>...</m>. I also use  
tth for everything - it does not look pretty on the screen, but is  
functional and legible. I found the other rendering mechanisms a bit  
too limited in what they can render, and can live with the ruggedness  
of tth (apparently, so can my students). In print, the same documents  
come out pretty.
