How htlatex decides which equations needs to convert as images and math

by MadyYuvi   Last Updated August 04, 2017 10:23 AM - source

I have given simple code below:


This is for test $-3$ inline equation $-z a-3\sqrt[2]{a+b}$


Then I run the command htlatex test "xhtml" " -cunihft" "-cvalidate-p", it converts the first display equation as HTML tag and the second inline upto \sqrt, it converts as HTML tags and the remaining as image, check the image attached:

enter image description here

And the converted HTML as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" ?> 
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" 
<html xmlns=""  
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" /> 
<meta name="generator" content="TeX4ht (" /> 
<meta name="originator" content="TeX4ht (" /> 
<!-- xhtml,html --> 
<meta name="src" content="test.tex" /> 
<meta name="date" content="2017-08-04 15:23:00" /> 
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="test.css" /> 
<!--l. 6--><p class="noindent" >This is for test <span 
class="cmsy-10">&#x2212;</span>3 inline equation <span 
class="cmmi-10">za </span><span 
class="cmsy-10">&#x2212; </span>3<img 
src="test0x.png" alt="&#x221A; -----
2 a+ b"  class="root" align="middle"  />


Can you please advise me how htlatex decides which part should treat as images and which as HTML tags?

Thanks in advance...
