TeX4ht doesn't quite understand the currvita style's cvlist environment. It appears that cvlist takes the heading as an argument, typesets this heading into an \sbox, and uses the sbox inside the first list item. TeX4ht then typesets the first list item incorrectly. Any quick fixes floating around?

You did not provide a mwe, so I used this LaTeX code:

\item something about it
\item this was a nightmare

which produces PDF:

enter image description here

when processed with htlatex, cvlist is transformed into dl tag, where text "expereinces" is in tag dt and \item are transformed into dd. It is possible to achieve layout similar to the pdf version useing some CSS code. You can add CSS to your document through custom config file, eg, curr.cfg:


\Css{dl {margin: 2em 0;
    padding: 0;
\Css{dt { position: relative;
    left: 0;
    width: 6em;
\Css{dd { border-left: 1px solid \#000;
    margin: 0 0 0 8em;
    padding: 0 0 .5em .5em;


and then you can call htlatex yourfile "curr".
