My understanding is that TeX document can (e.g.) draw an oval that touches
all corners of the page or (e.g.) insert the current date and PGP encrypt
it. True or false? If true, how do we convert that to MathML?

This also leads to the word-break problem. Even if we define words
rigorously, the output of the program can depend on the runtime
