Yes, this is my case and tex4ht helps me a lot. This is a truly amazing

Thank you, I have exactly this version.

In fact, the problem is the superfluous \relax inserted at some point into
the .4oo file.
More exactly, mk4ht makes this 5 steps

latex  ...
latex  ...
latex  ...
tex4ht ...
t4ht ...

If just before running t4ht you take the .4oo file and delete the
unnecessary \relax, everything goes fine. I even wrote a batch file
deleting it automatically and it works fine for me. So the problem is to
find what is responsible for inserting this superfluous \relax. This is too
difficult for me but I hope not for CVR.
