For this example isn't invocation of the color packages useless?

Generally, when things don't work with tex4ht, I would think about
re-doing the source before modifying or adding configs.

I modified your example to that below.  It then runs through both
htlatex and oolatex (I'm in ubuntu 10.04LTS).  The html is valid.
What I see in firefox is not quite right; I think that issue lies
mainly with the generated css.  The .odt opens reasonably well in

My tests suggest that the center environment works better than
\centering.  Also I made the tabulary width argument 0.5\textwidth, so
that I might better be able to see where it comes through in the html
or the css, but alas, I don't see it coming through.

% \usepackage{color}
% \usepackage{colortbl}

  \caption{Test table}
  \begin{tabulary}{0.5\textwidth}{l R}
    Blah & Blah\\
