Do you mean an issue with the text encoding in input files?

If so, I would point out that all of the *.tex and *.sty look ASCII to me
except for mcode.sty (the copy I found online), which introduces § (U+00A7)
as "math escape" (a matlab thing, I guess).  The mcode.sty I found online
is Latin-1 encoded.  I did check that (with make4ht -lua) changing
mcode.sty to UTF-8 did not seem to provide a fix.  But I haven't tried to
understand how the matlab stuff is imported or find where the mcode math
escape might be used.
