I've found that the mechanism we use for package patching in the preamble
(using usepackage.4ht) is broken due to changes in the LaTeX kernel. This
means that document compilation fails when you use Fontspec font selection
commands now, for instance. I've reported this issue on LaTeX issue tracker:


The report contains more information and code samples.

It seems that it cannot be fixed, as the change was done due to another bug.
So we will need to find a workaround. Ulrike Fisher suggested to use the
Filehooks package, which seems to work, so I hope that I will be able to come
with a fix soon.
