4ht – Convert to HTML/XML

A converter from and to SGML-based formats such as (X)HTML, MathML, OpenDocument, and Docbook, providing a configurable -based authoring system for hypertext.

4ht does not independently parse source (so it avoids the difficulties encountered by many other converters, arising from the irregularity of syntax). Instead, 4ht uses itself (with myriad macro modifications) to produce a helper DVI file that it can then process. This technique allows 4ht to approach the robustness characteristic of restricted-syntax systems such as gellmu.

Full releases of 4ht are no longer made, both because it is technically difficult to do so and because their utility is questionable. Nevertheless, 4ht is actively maintained. So, current source files are held on CTAN, and updated from the development repository frequently. Creating the myriad derived files from them is nontrivial, and generally done with the Makefile in development, from which the 4ht package in Live is updated.
