[Haskell-cafe] Pandoc questions

There doesn't seem to be any option to make Pandoc produce actual MathML 
output. Is there a reason for this?

(The only option I can see is to spit out raw LaTeX plus a 70KB 
JavaScript program to transform this into MathML at the client end --- 
which seems a little silly to me. There's also no way to style the raw 
LaTeX differently in case JavaScript is unavailable.)

Also, while Markdown *almost* does what I want, there are a few small 
constructs it doesn't have. For example, I'd like to have some way to 
denote a "term" the first time I use it. I could just use italics, but 
I'd prefer some way to visually indicate that this isn't just an 
emphasised word, it's a new technical term. In HTML, I'd use a style 
class, and in LaTeX I'd define a new command. But I can't see a way to 
do something that will still allow Pandoc to generate correct LaTeX 
*and* correct HTML from a single Markdown source... Any hints?
