I have the following latex file:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{longtable}
\begin{document}
\begin{longtable}{|ll|}
  %\toprule
  converter & version \\
  %\midrule
  %\midrule
  \endfirsthead%
  %\bottomrule
  \caption{Converters and the version this document refers to }%\label{tab:versions} 
  \endlastfoot%
  \texttt{pdflatex}  & \texttt{pdfTeX 3.141592653-2.6-1.40.24} \\% chktex 8
  \texttt{xelatex}   & \texttt{XeTeX 3.141592653-2.6-0.999994} \\% chktex 8
  \texttt{lualatex}  & \texttt{LuaHBTeX, Version 1.15.0} \\
\end{longtable}

\end{document}

With the catption i gen an error on htlatex test:

! Missing } inserted.
<inserted text> 
                }
l.190 ...and the version this document refers to }
                                                  %\label{tab:versions}
?

                                                  %\label{tab:versions}
No pages of output.
Transcript written on test.log.

If I comment out the caption, the problem disappears and the output text.html looks good.

Maybe I shall mention that in the log also occurs:

(/usr/share/texmf/tex/generic/tex4ht/tex4ht.sty
l.864 --- TeX4ht warning --- nonprimitive \everypar ---
--- needs --- tex4ht test ---

This test file is extracted from a bigger one and I could bet that this worked in earler releases... I use texlive.

I have the impression, that some config is wrong just. Who can help??

  • Wow, seems to work.... But I ask myself where your mystical file comes from. I just found svn.gnu.org.ua/viewvc/tex4ht/trunk, but there it does not occur. I think it is part of a early access version and I feel I would like to have it all. Can you provide me with the source? Commented Apr 10, 2023 at 20:01
  • @user2609605 you found the literate sources of TeX4ht. Configuration files for LaTeX packages are contained in tex4ht-4ht.tex. They will be generated from literate sources when you execute make in the lit directory.

  • Hm for me does not work: cant find DraTex.sty But else all ok. I accepted as answer, thank you. Commented Apr 10, 2023 at 21:03
  • @user2609605 do you have full TeX Live? I think DraTex.sty should be included (it is in mine distro at least).

  • no compilation does not work for me.. I installed DraTex.sty in the meanwhile... Very strange: did not find any documentation. Commented Apr 26, 2023 at 20:45
