I suspect it's a bug in writing the MathML rather than an issue with your

In the first example, i.e.,

   $\dot{\alpha}$ $x \dot{x}$

for the \dot{x} tex4ht generates U+1E8B (latin small letter x with dot
above) rather than putting an ordinary 'x' inside <mover> as the \alpha is
handled.  I think this handling of \dot{x} is parallel to using a regular
LaTeX accent rather than a math accent. Moreover, I'm wondering about the
choice of dot used with the \alpha.  Why choose U+0307 (combining dot
above) rather than U+02D9 (dot above)?  While U+0307 for the dot in
\dot{\alpha} looks OK in MathJax HTML/CSS, it does not look correct if I
use the menu to go for native MathML rendering in Firefox.  I find that
U+02D9 works both ways.
