thanks, Karl

don't you mean CTAN version? I though TL got updates. I think it
should be safe to update CTAN as well, so Miktex can be updated as

one question regarding tex4ht-html4.tex, this file does contain some
latin2 encoded characters, in particular it is configuration for
url-encoder. if I understand it correctly, this should declare
characters which should be replaced with entites in \url commands.
this declaration is used only when `url-il2-pl` command line option is
used. not all special characters are declared. now, the problem is
with lualatex, as it is unicode engine, it reports invalid utf-8
sequence even if it doesn't use url-encoders at all.

as it is unlikely that anybody uses still latin2 encoding and special
characters in urls at the same time, and given that list of these
escaped special characters isn't comprehensive anyway, maybe we should
take that away? because it causes compile errors every time tex4ht is
used with lualatex.
