So I have this


And using make4ht (tex4ht) it generates the following markup (I'm pasting it as outputed):

<p>   <img 
src="./src/images/screenshot--superman.png" alt="PIC"  

But It would be pretty awesome to add classes to that image using LaTeX with some kind of hack.

<img class="my-class" src="./src/images/screenshot--superman.png" alt="PIC" />

Is that doable through LaTeX itself, or should I set up some tex4ht hooks to add an enclosing <div class="my-class"> <img> </div>?

You can use \Configure{IMG}:

\Configure{IMG}{\HCode{<img class="my-class" src="}}{\HCode{" alt="}}{}{\HCode{"}}{\HCode{ />}}


This produces

<p class="noindent" ><img class="my-class" src="./src/images/screenshot--superman.png" alt="PIC" /> </p> 

if you want to preserve the image dimensions, you need to create .xbb file, which holds image dimensions. It can be created using `ebb command:

ebb -x src/img/*.png

the dimensions are now calculated:

<p class="noindent" ><img class="my-class" src="./src/images/screenshot--superman.png" alt="PIC"        
width="172.5pt" height="56.58652pt"  /> </p>

  • @michal.h21 I'd like to get rid of the <p> tag wrapping <img>, but I can't see how to modify \Configure{IMG} in order to obtain that. Let me know if you think I should ask a new question on this regard.

  • @michal.h21 Update: adding \IgnorePar\EndPat beginning of 1st argument of \Configure{IMG} I managed to make tex4ht close the <p> tag before the <img...> tag, but now I have an annoying empty HTML paragraph <p></p> before <img...>.

  • @mmj this might be worth it's own question :)
