Hi Jeremy,

\def\e#1{e^#1}
or the new command
\newcommand{\f}[1]{f^{#1}}
[...] fails to use superscripts.

Thanks (again :) for the report.  It hasn't been fixed in the current
sources.

What I'm not sure about is whether tex4ht ever looks inside user
definitions.  I had the impression it does for some things, but
evidently superscripts are not one of them.  I'm not sure how Eitan ever
intended this to be handled.

CVR, anyone?

Thanks,
k
