This is exactly what I do. Most of my writing with equations gets  
turned into reports, so it goes the LaTex->PDF route and XHTML is  
only a transitional step. I do have a (lately neglected) blog at  
www.leancrew.com/mechanics that uses jsMath. The template contains  
the <script>s that load and execute jsMath, the individual posts have  
the <math> tags after processing by my fork of MultiMarkdown.
