MathML, a language for describing mathematics in XML

MathML is an XML application for describing mathematical notation and capturing both its structure and content. Only a correct HTML5 parser, using the syntax defined in 8 The HTML syntax, will be able to properly interpret MathML elements when using text/html. When using application/xhtml+xml, one must use proper namespaces to ensure that MathML elements are interpreted correctly.

HTML Reference

The HTML5 specification references the <math> element in 4.8.14 MathML.
