 We encounter some problems with the {makeimage} environment. We have a very small tex file to show it:

----------------------------------------- File Test.tex ---------------------------------------------

\chapter{Test It}

------------------------------------- End FIle Test.tex -----------------------------------------

If the string "ABCD" in the makeimage environment is only ABC everything works.
If we insert more than that we get :

 The code in /usr/bin/latex2html line 11653 is :

.# RRM:  A makeimage environment generates a picture of its entire contents,
#  UNLESS it is empty.
sub do_env_makeimage {
    local($_) = @_;
    local($attribs, $border);
    if (s/$htmlborder_rx//o) { $attribs = $2; $border = (($4)? "$4" : 1) }
    elsif (s/$htmlborder_pr_rx//o) { $attribs = $2; $border = (($4)? "$4" : 1) }
    if (/^((\\begin\s*(($O|$OP)\d+($C|$CP))tex2html_deferred\3)?\\par(\\end(($O|$OP)\d+($C|$CP))tex2html_deferred\7)?\%?\s*\n)+$/s) { return("\n<BR>\n") }
    if (/^(\s\%?\n)+$/s) { return() }
    $_ = &process_undefined_environment($env, $id, $_);
    if (($border||($attributes))&&($HTML_VERSION > 2.1 ))
        { $_ = &make_table( $border, $attribs, '', '', '', $_ ) }
    $_ . ((!$_=~/^\s*$/)? "\n<BR>\n" :'');

Line 11653 is the second if statement  (if (/^((\\begin\s*(($O|$OP)\d+($C|$... ). I really know too little about Perl to debug this...

We tried this with several (newer)versions of latex2html and the behaviour is the same.
An older version (Version 99.2beta6 (1.42)) works OK.

In the mailing list there was a discussion about an empty makeimage environment. Has that something to do with this problem?

Is there a work around for this?
