Dear All,

The last version of bibtex4ht (from svn) seems to be from July 2010 (see 

However, there is still one bug remaining (with biblatex 09d), 
reproducable by the following minimal example:


AUTHOR = {Andreas Test},
TITLE = {Test for Biblatex with tex4ht},
JOURNAL = {Test Journal},
YEAR = {2010},
month = jul,


It seems that the defernums option causes the problems.

Best regards
