Hi Ray and Gerd,

If you have a tex file without any math (or with math that looks OK with 
tth), you can simply sandwich it in m-tags, using tth as follows:

<m display="tth">
Complete LaTeX document goes here

The tth mode is the only TeX display mode that understands plain latex.

If you have a few formulas, and you need jsmath to display them nice, 
you can fo as follows:

<m display="tth">
plain latex here

<m display="jsmath">
Math formula that needs jsmath to look nice

<m display="tth">
more plain latex
