It appears that even with the most popular but obsolete browser
algebraic expressions, curves and diagrams can arranged using
the position in tables or the absolute,relative style="position:
statements in layers. It is very awkward and limited however;
hopefully, things will improve once the need is demonstrated.
combination that is possible is a .png mader from a .svg
with Bezier curves in it being made transparent and in a layer
over a Jipsen TeX like algebraic expression.
Another method that can mix MathML and .svg uses
foreignObject . However, there seems to be difficulty in mixing
plots in a transparent layer.

limitations is at http://www.issi1.com/corwin/sniffers/combine.txt .
Examples of mixtures of expressions, where a table is used for positioning,
and diagrams where some combinations work and
don't work are here.
