Alexander is correct, what is required is a MathML -> SVG convertor.
We did extensive trials and research on this earlier in the year. There
are several fledgling candidates, but nothing remotely production-ready
(as of May 2004) for print.
Online delivery is another matter, as the Design Science MathPlayer
plugin (for IE) and support for MathML in Mozilla-derived browsers
There are a few MathML -> raster convertors, notably from Design
Science, and we tried embedding the resulting PNG images in XSL-FO
output, but quality is not sufficient.
So, I'm afraid you won't find a print MathML/XSL-FO solution from any
manufacturer at present. For small chunks of MathML you may find it
worthwhile to write custom XSLT to derive SVG (see J. David Eisenberg's
'SVG Essentials' for an example using matrices).
