sorry, the old latex just gives me a bunch of other problems that are much
worse. That train has left the station. I am not ever going to back to that
binary. But all the luatex-related problems have been solved for me I think.

Ok, well thanks for the explanation, but I think all these errors have been
fixed by ways of convert to and from ascii before and after using tex4ht.
Yes, this is only a quick-fix, but I'm still not convinced that the ultimate
solution would't be to tap into lua scripting and catch the text there
before it is ever written out to a dvi- or pdf-file.

The pgfplots external legend issues still exists.
