Hi all:

Just an update and a thank you to all who helped 
fix this or sent suggestions in.  I had a problem 
with converting TeX documents to html using 
TeX4ht where some text was dropped and ligatures 
were garbled.

With Eitan's help, I was able to eliminate all of 
the glitches I was having from converting TeX 
documents to html resolved by adjusting the 
i-records in

   /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/tex4ht/ht-fonts  . . . .

and then doing a few other things he suggested that I don't recall right now.

One issue remained, however:  the ''ff'' and 
other ligatures _would_ render correctly in 
FireFox and Mozilla but not in Safari (running 
10.3.9).  In Safari these ligatures would appear 
in a different font than the rest of the text. 
Because I could not fix this I simply ignored it 
figuring that the problem was in Safari's 

I re-installed TeX using the latest updates to 
TeX (2005 version) and can happily report that 
the problem is now 110% resolved -- the ligatures 
appear correctly in FireFox, Mozilla, and Safari 
in all the documents I've tested so far.

Thanks again to everyone for their help and 
suggestions and especially to Eitan and Gerben 
for doing their magic!
