Thanks Michal;

Your new style file fixed some of the problems in the TOC,
but I see few other entries in the TOC still have problems
when I run it on my main file (not the MWE I gave)

I guess these needs to be added to \fixmathjaxtoc.

btw, I did not have to do anything to my .cfg? I just needed to
download your new style file which has this command in it.

I now running the full build and will make list of all
these commands that needs to be added.

There is over 70,000 entries in the TOC spreads of hundreds of
web pages anbd it takes days to compile, so it will take me
sometime to make a list of all of them and give it to you.

For example on one file, I get now this TOC in HTML (using
your new updated style file). You can see some still needs
to be fixed


While the same file using svg looks like this


Thanks again for your help.
