I get the same, but I think that the element "<inlineequation>" is
wrong for two reasons:

1. the element is intended for "A mathematical equation or expression
occurring inline." [1] but it has been generated by a latex
environment that produces display math

2. the xml file is not valid against docbook 5.
To do the validation I use emacs with nXML mode and docbook.rnc (and
relax ng schema files from http://www.docbook.org/xml/5.0/rng/)

[1] http://www.docbook.org/tdg5/en/html/inlineequation.html

If I use a configuration file such as:
--- a.cfg ---



and compile
htlatex x a

the resulting xml might be more accurate and valid.

Please note that the solution I'm proposing is incomplete, as I'm not
taking care of paragraphs closures and equation numbers (tags), and
maybe other things :-)
