[OS X TeX] Latest TeX and tex4ht problems

So far the latest update is very stable for me and, if I'm not  
imagining it, runs a bit faster on my `old' 550MHz TiBook. The only  
problem I've run into---and I've run into this before---is that now  
htlatex is messed up. I usually use the options "html,pic-m+,pic- 
tabular,pic-fbox" and now all equations aren't being created; I tend  
to get garbled text.

I suspect it's my tex4ht.env file (again!). There are actually three  
in my tree. All are located in /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/ 
tex4ht/base/ with one in that directory and two others in a unix/ and  
win32/ sub-directory of that directory. I suspect the one in that  
directory is the one I had before the update. Can someone please e- 
mail me a working tex4ht.env and let me know where it is supposed to go.

My old custom format (rebuilt of course), LaTeX (what I use almost  
exclusively now) seems to work fine with all my fonts, XeTeX and  
XeLaTeX (used for doing some fancy font stuff for my wife's family  
reunion invitations and name tags (no maths) --- beautiful) and even  
my Hello World with a \showbodyfont[lbr] in ConTeXt works great.

Speaking of ConTeXt, why does texexec run twice on the trivial file:

Hello world.

when I wouldn't expect two runs to be necessary; i.e., no cross  
references, etc.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
