Your method 1), below, does not produce correct results if one then uses menu>Save As Special>HTML+MathML. I view the resulting .xml file in a MathML-enabled browser (e.g., Mozilla with appropriate TrueType fonts installed -- the four BaKoMa cm fonts, the "old" Mathematica "Math1", etc., fonts, and the two MT fonts. Then the everything in the originally multi-line inline cell appears on one line separate by a ?, as do the alignment markers. In the page source, these unrendered symbols have codes #8289 and #63328, respectively. Is there an issue of the encoding used in the browser here? I did try Unicode-7, Unicode-8, and several of the "Western" encodings available under Mozilla's Default Character Encoding. Or is it something else? Note that I do also have the "new" Mathematica TrueType fonts ("Mathematica1", etc.). P.S. I don't think Mathematica documents this, but if one wants a file exported from Mathematica as HTML+MathML to be rendered correctly by a browser, it seems to require an extension of .xml rather than .html.
