Just thought in the light of recent posts on bed-time reading on tablets with boost.book would try this on a mobile device.
On Android Kit-Kat default browser there is some clipping of these equations but I'm not quite sure how you are calculating the width and height for the svg elements since these are just given in your html.
I've attached a screen shot showing the clipping for airy_bi
If I adjust the sizes in the html to say <object type="image/svg+xml" data="equations/airy_bi.svg" width="300" height="125"></object> then no clipping occurs
Sorry for re-post if original does get through but the list didn't like the size of the png I attached so I've resent without it - see https://www.dropbox.com/s/oh0r7uqjrn9duyq/Screenshot_2014-12-08-14-19-29.png?dl=0
Which hopefully is accessible.
