Hi all,

I've tested tex4ht page using Google Search Console. It reported the
page as "Not mobile friendly", with issues listed as "Text too small",
"Viewport not set" and "Clickable elements too close together". I've
added the <meta name="viewport"> element to tex4ht web and increased
the line-height CSS property for the text. It seems to do the trick,
as tex4ht page is now reported as mobile friendly at
https://search.google.com/test/mobile-friendly. I guess similar
settings will be necessary to do for also other pages on TUG server,
as Google seems to be sanctioning pages that don't follow their ideas
about web development :(

Good news is that tex4ht web is back in Google search, I just tested
it on several machines.

Another news is that Karl and me updated the contents on the page,
there is now list of newest entries in the ChangeLog of the literate
sources, so it is possible to track the tex4ht development progress
from the homepage. I am not sure about the position of the ChangeLog,
it takes a lot of space, maybe we should move it after the links? We
also added more headers, restructured the links and updated text in
Bug reports and Current status sections.

Best regards,
