I have tables with accented letters and other non-roman scripts, but they do not appear inside the environment tabular.

The letters do appear outside of the tabular environment.

i compile with make4ht -ul hello.tex

I use an extension of tex4ht by @michal.h21,


\documentclass[oneside,a4paper, 12pt]{article}


  \setmainfont{TeX Gyre Termes}
  \newfontfamily\greekfont{Linux Libertine O}
  \newfontfamily\russianfont{Linux Libertine O}

\begin{tabular}{Qc Ac Ac Ac}
Πράγα   & Μολδάβα & ústředních & Запад  \tabularnewline

You have found another bug in helpers4ht, thanks for testing :). The problem is that character processing is done in LuaTeX node processing callbacks. In this case it is pre_linebreak_filter, which is called before paragraphs are broke into lines. But it isn't called in certain situations, such as in tabular cells. For supporting of such cases, one needs to call also hpack_filter.

I've updated the helpers4ht, please install the new version. The correct result:

  • does it work with tabularx, tabulary, longtable and perhaps other packages for tables ? – Koala Jan 4 '16 at 7:04
  • I hope so, as long as these environments itself are supported by tex4ht – michal.h21 Jan 4 '16 at 7:34
  • q @michal.h21, I have a new problem with this update tex.stackexchange.com/q/285890/93524 – Koala Jan 4 '16 at 9:04
