Thank you again Michal;

I do not understand why it works for you and it hangs for me.

I made a small movie so you can see. This is animated GIF file,
so please click on this in your browser to see the movie


When I compile small.tex, it works. But when I compile try.tex
which is large latex file, it seems to hang.

make4ht -um draft -f html5+dvisvgm_hashes small.tex svg #works
make4ht -um draft -f html5+dvisvgm_hashes try.tex svg #hangs

i.e. no more output. It seems to stop in the middle
as you can see in the movie. I do not know if I wait 5 hrs
more or more it will finish as there is no indication it is doing

I put also the ZIP file containing your new files
and everything used in the above movie in this folder


Well, I do not know what else to say, but thanks again
for your efforts, but it is not working on my end for
some reason. I am using texlive 2018 on Linux in Ubuntu
under windows 10 linux subsystem. And just to make
sure it has nothing to do with this set up, I always
tried the same thing on my Linux PC, wich is standalone
PC running Linux Manjaro. And it also hanged there.
