Many thanks for this bug report. There are a few problems in jsmath
configuration package of TeX4ht. If you encounter more, please do not
hesitate to post.

I have fixed your problem as provided in the test file below:

<--------- Begin test file ------------>




    {\IgnorePar \ifinalign@\HCode{\string\cr }%
     \else \ifingather@\HCode{\string\cr }%
    {\BB:text \ifvmode \IgnorePar \fi \EndP\ifinalign@
        \HCode{\string\cr }\else \ifingather@
        \HCode{\string\cr }\fi\fi}

Some \verb!align*! mathematics with an \verb!intertext! line:

<--------- End test file ------------>

Actually those <mtr> and <mtd> tags shouldn't be there at all. Those
are inserted by the default configuration of \intertext command. I
have modified the same in the test file given above.  If it works fine
in your case, we will fix the problem in TeX4ht packages and commit to

You can safely ignore it, it comes from the newly inserted licence
text at the top of the file. We will fix it before next release.
