Please accept my apologies. I could not do it till date owing to
certain personal preoccupations. Now working hard to clear all the
pending bugs. Please bear with me for a few days.

I agree with Karl. We will provide new version of biblatex.4ht.
biblatex.sty itself is a complex package and making it work with
tex4ht needs a few days to complete. We will do that as quickly as

That is correct. I would be very happy if somebody well versed in
biblatex come forward to join the tex4ht project. If so, things would
be much more easier. I am not an expert of biblatex and without
knowing the innards of  biblatex, it is difficult to provide a long
lasting solution.
