I am trying to send participants to a HTML page externally (not embedded in inquisit like usual with a HTMLpage) because the equations used on the html page are not shown otherwise. This needs to happen in the middle of a batch script, is this possible?
Thanks
Dave

No. You'd have to split things into two separate experiments.

However, I'd like to see the HTML page that you say isn't rendered properly when displayed by Inquisit if possible. There may be ways to fix that.

When the file is this, it just presents as a group of symbols.
When the html page is downloaded into internal storage, everything except the equations show correctly.
Thanks!

The problem with the page -- when used locally -- is its reliance on MathJax, which doesn't allow for easy local use.

The most robust and low-tech way to work around that would be to take screenshots of the equations on that page and then replace the equations in your local copy with those images. A quick modification of that HTML page is attached to give you the general idea, with the width settings in the <img> elements you'll have to toy around (or just take your screenshots such that each has the same width).
