I have been playing around with the vertical alignment of formulas.
(Images below are from my website and may not display correctly forever.)

Here is a simple equation test.png, with no vertical alignment.

Here is the same equation test.png, with the ALIGN="center" tag, as used in typeset2 currently.

In dvipng-0.8, there will be a command line option that gives the "depth", the number of pixels below the baseline, on stdout. Then one can align (in a CSS-aware browser) on that baseline, like so: test.png using STYLE="vertical-align: -8px". Nice, eh?

One can give STYLE="vertical-align: -8px" ALIGN="center", which is interpreted as just the STYLE tag in my browser, and presumably as the ALIGN tag in an oldish browser.
