OK this is the export via elyxer. (Elyxer is a 3rd-party program with
separate documentation and configuration, see

I tried with a minimal example (file with just a displayed formula
containing dotted q and Q).

Here, if I chose Alt-feh, the generated HTML has no PNGs included (see
below). I can drag-and drop »Q̇q̇« from Firefox.

This may depend on local elyxer setup.

For both or only the capital Q?

Fine, so this seems to work fine at least. I wonder why the PNG should
differ... Do you use custom fonts?

LyXHTML export works fine here as well and Firefox shows the dots at the
right hight and above the variables. (Display may be different in
browsers that have missing or deficient MathML support.)


Here is the example output from elyxer:
