Yes, if the document type you use provides for math. The mathematics-using community is developing software, and there is a MathML proposal at the W3C, which is a native XML application. It would also be possible to make XML fragments from the long-expired HTML3, HTML Pro, or ISO 12083 Math, or OpenMath, or one of your own making. Browsers which display simple math embedded in SGML already exist (eg Panorama, Multidoc Pro).
