Perhaps the problem is that we use for TL some mix from the official
release from CTAN and from the bugfixes. We have now (in bugfixes), e.g.
completelly new stuff for htfonts and tex/generic/tex4ht/ as compared to
CTAN. Some of those changes are in the texlive repository.

As I can remember from the last year discussion, the texk version of
tex4ht completely ignores some settings in tex4ht.env, like
or similar, with `/' for Windows. Instead, it uses kpathsea and/or time 
compile settings, so cannot be modified by the user in tex4ht.env
(the last resort it to set, eg., TEX4HTFONTS in the environement).

I hope also that for convert -transparent (instead of -transparency)
can be finally fixed for TL's tex4ht.env. As I see, some config files
are still different from those accepted in texmf tree.
