I'm trying to use colortbl together with tex4ht:


When calling htlatex.bat, the result is:

! Undefined control sequence.
\begin:current@color ->\let \sv:curcolor
l.4 \begin{tabulary}{\textwidth}{C}

I assume that tex4ht needs some more "configuration" (as Eitan always put it). How is this configuration done?

I'm using SVN revision 88 from the tex4ht-SVN: http://svn.gnu.org.ua/sources/tex4ht/trunk/.

htlatex.bat is from: http://svn.gnu.org.ua/sources/tex4ht/trunk/bin/ht/win32/htlatex.bat

  • could you please post the content of htlatex.bat , I tried your MWE on Windows 7 / MikteX and could not reproduce the error. May 21, 2012 at 11:52

    See the same error with TeX Live 2012, so I suspect this is an issue tex4ht.

This appears to be a bug in tex4ht: I see the problematic behaviour with TeX Live 2012 and TeX Live 2013. As such, the best that can be done is to report it formally: I will.
