Thanks Sebastian...

Any MathML (or TeX) experts out there? I can't seem to figure out how to 
properly format

 13.50
  7.75
-------
$21.25

is

<maction>
<mrow>
    <mn>13.50</mn>
</mrow>
<mrow>
    <mn>7.75</mn>
</mrow>
<mrow>
    <mo>------</mo>
</mrow>
<mrow>
    <mn>$21.25</mn>
</mrow>
<maction>
