I hadn't thought to do this, but it's a good idea. Note that you can
just copy the relevant code out of the Code Preview pane, so don't
really have to export.

A quick test shows that pasting MathML into Canvas does seem to work,
though maybe setting the math export type to HTML (under Formats, in
Document Settings) would be safer, if it worked.
