Thanks, JOS, for kindly taking the time to reply to me. Did you find your
workaround solutions to eliminate unwanted black line segments to work in a
version of LaTeX2HTML different from the one I am using? I tried the two
workaround solutions you mentioned with LaTeX2HTML Version 2008 (1.71):
1) $DVIPSOPT = ' '; in the file /usr/lib/latex2html/l2hconf.pm in place of
$DVIPSOPT .= " -E"; ;
2) Including the line "transform round exch round exch itransform" right
after the line "gsave newpath" in the file
/usr/lib/texmf/dvips/config/alt-rule.pro [The path for the file alt-rule.pro
is slightly different in LaTeX2HTML Version 2008 (1.71) than the path
mentioned within the version of the file alt-rule.pro replacing alt-rule.pro
in LaTeX2HTML Version 2008 (1.71).].
And for the tests I returned to "$MATH_SCALE_FACTOR=1.6;", without the
double quotation marks, within the file /usr/lib/latex2html/l2hconf.pm. But
unfortunately in my case the workaround 1 and the combination of the
workarounds 1 and 2 did not remove the unwanted black line segment
underneath an integral sign in the .html file produced by a latex2html
command working with the .tex file containing the LaTeX command \int\limits
_{-\infty}^{+\infty} within an equation environment. I also tried single
quotation marks or apostrophes in place of double quotation marks in the
line $DVIPSOPT = " -E"; in the file l2hconf.pm; but still the unwanted black
line segments remained within the produced .html file. So I still request
help to remove the unwanted black line segments underneath some of my
integral signs.
