• Thank you, this will be very useful (and something very much awaited by tex4ht users). Thank you (and Karl Berry) for all your efforts maintaining tex4ht.

• Great list! But, I can not got to work option“endnotes”, and it isn’t mentioned in the documentation… Is it something new? (puszcza is down at the moment).

• Thanks.

The ‘endnotes’ option appears to be for oolatex invocation. I’d salvaged most of the options from Eitan’s literate sources, as such, many of them are untested. I will try to add appropriate script name (along with options) if an option is not meant for the default html or xhtml output.

Thank you for the useful list. However, not all options work for all output modes (XHTML, OpenOffice, …) Would you consider adding a matrix or a list for which output modes each option is valid?

• Thanks — for all your tex4ht work!
I’ve wanted ‘pic-align’ for ages…

Is there any option to produce equations in their original LATEX form (not converted to MathML) so that they can be displayed with MathJax?
