Follow-up Comment #4, bug #365 (project tex4ht):

Please ignore my previous post. Puszcza does not have the preview yet, and it

I don't know how the

link ../protex/ProTex.sty

works, but I presume that this is dependant on the version control system.
This means that anyway, if you don't apply that sort of change as I proposed,
you will get in trouble if ever you migrate from SVN to something else like

I understand that tex4ht is quite complex. I don't want to cause any trouble,
that is all the contrary : I am currently looking into it, and hopefully this

that is to carry out this kind of minor changes.

I attached a simpler patch that just does the protex symbolic links. It also
contains the removal of the dummy lit/protex files:

I would like to help with the generation and the unitary tests before changing
a single piece of code.

I am also currently looking at generating all the dependancies with an AWK

becomes more mature.
