This is the goal of LatexWiki.  The idea is to have a text format that
has markup that is as natural as possible.  If you are not familiar with
StructuredText, take a look at::

I have added basic latex math components like $$, \[\] and
\begin{equation}...\end{equation}.  StructuredText is used by the python
and zope projects for their in-code documentation.  It might also be
appropriate for Axiom.

As I mentioned elsewhere, StructuredTextLatex will soon be available
standalone, so axiom/aldor users need not run all fo zope and zwiki to
look at the source docs.  It will generate either HTML+images for
equations or XHTML+MathML.
