[OS X TeX] TeXShop 5.12

Producing an html version of the TeXShop Manual works nicely now, with these methods:

(1) either with the minor editing of names with accents in Manual.tex, as suggested by Herb Schulz, or by leaving those accents alone but using the Lua-TeX4ht engine from Ulrich Groh (but the double accent over the "e" in "Hàn Thế Thành" is spread horizontally instead of stacked vertically); and

(2) for making separate pages for each section, using the "book.4ht" file as modified by "michal.h21" in https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/676531/13492, which is to appear soon in the TeX4ht sources on CTAN so as to link the title page to the rest by the usual tex4ht navigation menus.

For sectioned html, the TeXShop engine I'm actually using is now this file Lua-TeX4htSecs:

# !TEX-bothPreview
set path= ($path /Library/TeX/texbin /usr/texbin /usr/local/bin)
make4ht --lua "$1" "mathjax,3"
lualatex  -file-line-error -synctex=1 "$1" 

Note that, since the documentclass is book rather than article, the sectioning parameter in the make4ht call is increented by 1, from 2 to 3 (if the source had been documentclass article, it would have been 2).

Would it be useful to include an html version of the Manual in future versions of TeXShop? Especially with such sectional navigation, browser-based documentation is sometimes easier than a single pdf file.
