Hi Tomáš,

The updated version is here: 

It contains some new options, but I think the descriptions for the old 
ones are mostly the same. 

Regarding spliting into indivitual pages, you should try "2" or "3" 
options instead. Option 1 splits pages only on \part commands, "2" on 
\chapter, "3" on \section etc.

You can try this configuration file:

\Css{figure.figure img { display: inline; }}

The important is the \Css command.

I can see that there is support TeX4ht file for exerquiz package, but it 
is pretty old and contains some obsolete HTML elements and JS. So it 
will definitelly need an update. I must figure how to install exerquiz, 
because it isn't included in TeX Live.

Can you please send a full TeX file that use exerquiz that I can use for 

Best regards,
