of context ...

Org/OpenDocument exporter can convert from LaTex to MathML using
MathToWeb. One can also use MathJax to see the MathML equivalents of a
LaTex snippet. In my experience, MathJax seems to be more mature
compared to MathToWeb. 

See (info "(org) Working with LaTeX math snippets")

for their software. Also they win over an enthusiast or a detractor
depending upon how well you have crafted your input.
