### MathML Workaround for Blogger

Earlier I posted about not being able to get MathML to work with Blogger. As you can see below I've a partial workaround:
Now there's still a spacing issue, but its a start. Behind the scenes its uglier

<object type="application/xhtml+xml" data="data:application/xhtml+xml;base64,PG1hdGggaWQ9ImVxdWF0aW9uIiBzdHlsZT0iZGlzcGxheTpub25lOyIgeG1sbnM9Imh0dHA6Ly93 d3cudzMub3JnLzE5OTgvTWF0aC9NYXRoTUwiPgogIDxtcm93PgogICAgPG1zdXA+CiAgICAgIDxt ZmVuY2VkIG9wZW49IlsiIGNsb3NlPSJdIj4KICAgICAgICA8bXJvdz4KICAgICAgICAgIDxtaT5h PC9taT4KICAgICAgICAgIDxtbz4rPC9tbz4KCiAgICAgICAgICA8bWk+YjwvbWk+CgogICAgICAg IDwvbXJvdz4KICAgICAgPC9tZmVuY2VkPgogICAgICA8bW4+MjYwPC9tbj4KICAgIDwvbXN1cD4K ICAgIDxtbz4rPC9tbz4KICAgIDxtc3ViPgoKICAgICAgPG1mZW5jZWQgb3Blbj0ieyIgY2xvc2U9 In0iPgoKICAgICAgICA8bXJvdz4KICAgICAgICAgIDxtaT5hPC9taT4KICAgICAgICAgIDxtbz4r PC9tbz4KICAgICAgICAgIDxtaT5iPC9taT4KICAgICAgICA8L21yb3c+CiAgICAgIDwvbWZlbmNl ZD4KCiAgICAgIDxtaT5pPC9taT4KCiAgICA8L21zdWI+CiAgPC9tcm93Pgo8L21hdGg+Cg=="></object>Ugly, huh? The data URI is a base64 encoding of the following:

<math id="equation" style="display:none;" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML"> <mrow> <msup> <mfenced open="[" close="]"> <mrow> <mi>a</mi> <mo>+</mo> <mi>b</mi> </mrow> </mfenced> <mn>260</mn> </msup> <mo>+</mo> <msub> <mfenced open="{" close="}"> <mrow> <mi>a</mi> <mo>+</mo> <mi>b</mi> </mrow> </mfenced> <mi>i</mi> </msub> </mrow> </math>Now, in theory, I should just be able to set the

`data`

attribute of the object to `#equation`

, but that doesn't seem to work for some reason. So in order to get the MathML to display without needing to put it in an external file I had to use the "data" URI scheme. If anyone knows a workaround to the base64 portion of my workaround let me know.
