I wonder if your last example on that page is correct...neither Maple
nor Mathematica will do that integral.

I was thinking to separate your code into a different PageType.  i.e.
the PageType specifies what this document is *written* in.  Separate
from that is the presentation (i.e. png/mathml which should not be a
page type -- as I have it now).  Is the new Reduce stuff in your darcs

But now we have two math backends...and it might be very useful to have
both in the same document.  So should we define a
StructuredText+LaTeX+Math pagetype where 'Math' refers to any symbolic
backend?  It would also be useful to do a bit of stylesheet magic to
differentiate between Axiom/Reduce/Maxima...  Perhaps some small text in
the UR corner that says what language this is.
