```Hi,

it should also be possible to render Formulas to SVG, and embed the
SVG-File using a data-URL, and get a vector rendering of your
formular.... similar to the image in

But probably that will hit size bounds very soon.

also explains how to ship the SVG files separately, to not hit size
bounds.

I guess a tool similar to that, latex-haddock, would be feasible and
useful.

Greetings,
Joachim
