How do I employ the hej.cfg file?

I thought such config files would be included in the first list
of options on the command line, like this:
  htlatex  graphics.tex "xhtml,2,hej,mathml,charset=utf-8" \
     "-cmozhtf -utf8" "-cvalidate"
However, this command still produces a PNG file which is used
in the <img> element in HTML.  Where did I err?

BTW.  What is the purpose of
in the config?
