Hi Shigeharu,

Thanks for your reply.  Sorry that I was not clear in my message.  I am
running CentOS 8 with virtualbox on a Windows 10 machine.  I was missing the
perview style and once I installed that, it would pass the "make test"
check.   I have figures in eps format and never was able to get the svg
images to work correctly.   I think your option 3 has solved that issue.  

Thanks again for your reply.  I appreciate it!   

Thanks again!  

Roy  Hogan

Current latex2html (2018.3 or after) uses preview package, but it it is not
included in latex2html distributions.

1) Preview package is included in some TeX systems like as TeXLive or
MiKTeX. If you use such TeX systems, you don't need to install it.

2) Preview package is available on CTAN site:


If you download and install it on your PC, the problem may be solved.

3) latex2html (2018.3 or after) uses the preview package when USE_DVIPNG
(default), or IMAGE_TYPE = svg (default). So, if you specify options 

  -nouse_dvipng -image_type=png

to latex2html, the problem may not occur. At "make test", please

  make test "ARGS=-nouse_dvipng -image_type=png"

But, If you want svg images for equations, you should follow 1) or 2).
