The current official suggestion is to write them in xhtml, and resort
to using <m> only when mathematics needs to be shown.

This will put the least load on the machines, and should look good in
both locations.

Yes it would.


all convert well when printing..

You of course can do what ever works for you.

(0.6.0 will have significantly better printing facilities.)
