Hi,
if the system that builds the html help page is latex capable, then it
would not be too difficult to use the same trick wikipedia is using
(generating a png file for each equation). Translating latex style
markup into mathml is another game, see this:
http://www1.chapman.edu/~jipsen/mathml/asciimath.html for example.
