[tex4ht] htxelatex support for unicode and multiple scripts

Thank you all for all your help on my query about full Unicode support and
tex4ht. Thanks to your help, I now have a workflow which produces what I
want, including Unicode in the bibliography (which I achieve by running
CV Radhakrishnan's script on my .bib file as well as my main .tex file, as
Ulrike Fischer suggested I try):

perl utf2ent.pl word.converter.tex > word.converter-ent.tex
> perl utf2ent.pl FILEPATH/alexhistory.bib >
> word.converter.alexhistory-ent.bib
> mk4ht oolatex word.converter-ent "xhtml, charset=utf-8"  -utf8
> biber word.converter-ent
> mk4ht oolatex word.converter-ent "xhtml, charset=utf-8"  -utf8

The outputted Word document is almost perfect. The only trouble is that
Unicode characters in the footnotes produced by biblatex have a different
font size for some mysterious reason. But this is easily fixed by selecting
all the footnote text and assigning it the same font size!

So again, thank you for making it possible for me to remain in the TeX
world as I write!
