I've been fiddling with this for three hours and I feel so lost because it seems like nothing I do has any effect on the tex4ht generated html.

I have a fairly large document that I'm building as a pdf using pdflatex as well as for html using tex4ht.

I have a few html requirements:

  • Front page ToC with sections and subsections.
  • Numbered paragraphs.
  • Section page ToC with subsection, subsubsections, and paragraphs.
  • Paragraph headings on a new line.

In pdf I have the same requirements as html, but I don't need the third. I have fulfilled the first two requirements, I'm just missing the final one but that's a bonus question. I want to focus on the tex4ht things.

I currently have the front page ToC with sections and subsections using \Configure{tableofcontents*}{section,subsection}. I have numbered paragraphs using \setcounter{secnumdepth}{4}. I can't for the life of me get the others to work.

Here is my raw cfg file: https://pastebin.com/64ECC1G6

Try these configurations for the paragraphs:

\Configure{paragraph}{}{}{\ifvmode\IgnorePar\fi\EndP\HCode{<h4 class="paragraphHead">}\TitleMark\space}{\HCode{</h4>}\IgnoreIndent}

The \Configure{paragraph} configures paragraph, the \ifvmode\IgnorePar\fi\EndP takes care of closing paragraphs, \TitleMark prints the paragraph number and \IgnoreIndent disables indent for the next text paragraph.

\ConfigureMark{paragraph}{\theparagraph} enables \theparagraph counter to be available in the \TitleMark.

The CSS code configures indentation in the TOC.
