# [tex4ht] BUG: xcolor tex4ht

Thank you Karl, but that has nothing to do with the TeX4ht problems.

I was able to fix the first problem by simply moving the \definecolor outside
of \AtBeginDocument.  Now I have another problem, illustrated by the following
MWE.  This works all nice and fine with my default engine LuaTeX, but fails
with htlatex.  This seems to be a rather longstanding problem, because
searching for the error message brought up this old thread from 2012 with zero
replies: https://tug.org/pipermail/tex4ht/2012q4/000653.html

Cheers, Henri
