Hi, Oleg!

Thanks for this great work.

It seems that baselines of formulas and surrounding text are aligned,
which is an important feature, which is missing from several other
solutions. However, when looking at the situation in detail, the
formulas seem to be slightly too high. Does the conversion mechanism
take baselines into account, or is the approximate alignment achieved
just by accident?

I see a small problem here: The example formula

    (x = y) ↔ (∀z. (z ≤ x) ↔ (z ≤ y))

has the letters y slightly cut off at the bottom, probably because they
extend some automatically computed bounding box. Could this be fixed?

All the best,
