I have using htlatex for converting LaTeX to HTML. Everything is working fine except \begin{align*} environment is not converting to Image. Please find the MWE below:

 3x+4&=16 \\
 3x&=16-4\ \hbox{Subtract 4 from both sides.} \\
 &=12 \\
 x&=\frac{12}{3}\ \hbox{Divide both sides by 3.} \\

\frac{12}{13} is only converted to Image remaining is not converting to Image format. How to get all the \begin{align*}...\end{align*} in Image format?

Try pic-align option:

 htlatex sample "xhtml, pic-align"

for more available options see CVR's blog, more similar options for pictorial math exist.

  • Thanks Michal. I have using own config file so that used htlatex foo.tex my,pic-align". It's working fine. If giving space after , it's not converting.

  • @MaxM qotes around "xhtml, pic-align" are important, you write it incorrectly
