I just put a new zip file with this missing .tex included file:

OK, that helps.  I also had to go looking online for mcode.sty.

It builds with make4ht if I remove the \subimport-ing for e97 and e98.
In fact, I had trouble with one of those (I think) in building pdf with
pdftex -- a complaint about a double superscript that I did not want to
take the time to find after a small bit of looking.  I don't know why we
should expect tex4ht to support \subimport.  (Does it?)  Beyond that, I
think I see package conflicts with e97
 and e98 ... packages loaded followed by the \input of commonlatex which
loads some of the same.

The HTML document I made (one big file without e97 and e98) looks
reasonable.  I ran it through the validator for my private SGML profile of
HTML5, and from that I have several comments.

There are about 500 img open tags with a loose semi-colon between attribute
specs, probably due to some issue in one of your tex4ht configs.  In fact,
they are all


There are 7 complaints about </p> tags for which p is not open.

Aside from that I would suggest for HTML5 (one is suppoosed to see an HTML5
document as a DOM object with two serializations, one xml) that the element
names SCRIPT and IMG and the img attribute names SRC, ALT, and WIDTH all be
lower case, cf. \HCode for mma_movie_100.
