All of them are buggy:
  * l2h generates image files as documented, which have many drawbacks
    (do not work with text browsers, not accessible, font size issues
    with a graphical browser...).
  * Concerning t4h,
      @math{@var{base} \le 16},
    yields "@varbase ≤ 16 ,", so @var doesn't work (while it is needed
    to ensure exactly the same typography/code as outside @math, e.g.
    <var>base</var>) and there is a spurious space before the comma.
  * mathjax is not compatible with text browsers.
