Sample odt document

When exporting to XHTML a document with mathematical formulas, it would be great to have an option to insert

<script type="text/javascript" 

in the header in order to workaround the lack of MathML support in the browser. That would be something like "insert MathJax header".

Sample output

Here is how the output could look like. Note that the MathML will display correctly in any browsers.

Compare with attachment 81592 [details].

This modifies the XHTML filter so that the XSLT stylesheets have an option to insert the MathJax script. Set <xsl:param name="mathjax"> to "true()" to test it.

At the moment there is no UI to enable that option and pass it to the XSLT processor.

On https://www.mathjax.org/#gettingstarted
I see <script src="https://polyfill.io/v3/polyfill.min.js?features=es6"></script>
<script id="MathJax-script" async src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/mathjax@3/es5/tex-mml-chtml.js"></script>

Of cause for XHTML a value for the attribute is needed, that is:
<script src="https://polyfill.io/v3/polyfill.min.js?features=es6"></script>
<script id="MathJax-script" async="async" src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/mathjax@3/es5/tex-mml-chtml.js"></script>

What is the difference to
<script type="text/javascript" 
which is included in the patch?
