im using htlatex to transcript a latex file to html for a web application. It seems to work fine with most of my equations, but as soon as I use \frac or \dfrac the images of the equations become very blurry. Somehow I also had to stop using the equation environment in favor of $ $.

Im not sure if a minimum example would help?

$F_i=\left(\dfrac{L_i}{Y_i}\right)^\alpha $

After using "htlatex file.tex" the output is realy blurry

  • Confirmed: with \[...\] everything is blurry, and with $ ... $, only the fraction is. Can't help you though.

  • the math is converted as images by default. it is better to use mathml with mathjax, see tex.stackexchange.com/a/68962/2891

  • Thanks that solution seems a bit above my head. I was hoping for a more dirty quick fix

  • This is a easiest solution, other solutions require config files editing and produce inferior results

  • Ok I think i managed somehow. I created the cfg file with my word editor. and used your command without the end part. cause then it did not create a new html file so I used: htlatex frac.tex "ht5mjlatex.cfg, charset=utf-8"
