Tex4ht is a highly configurable tex-based authoring system for producing hypertext. it interacts with tex-based applications through style files and postprocessors, leaving the processing of the source files to the native tex compiler. consequently, tex4ht can handle the features of tex-based systems in general, and of latex in particular.
tex4ht can be used both for authoring html using tex/latex input files, or for converting existing tex input files (in any format) into html, with (usually) only minor modifications. other varieties of hypertext can also be produced, including xml, xhtml, mathml and the openoffice.org format of xml.
there are a number of different ways to convert glyphs and graphics in the dvi files into png, gif or jpeg. the default is to use dvipng. alternatives using ghostscript, imagemagick, netpbm and/or pstoedit are also possible.
this package contains only the architecture independent files for tex4ht. you should install the tex4ht package to use these files.
