By mistake, I left the command \usepackage{showframe} when
compiling with make4ht. It looks like it is not supported in tex4ht for
obvious reasons.

I wonder if tex4ht could just ignore this package instead
of giving compile error?

Workaround is simple, which is to bypass it explicitly in the code
when using tex4ht
