Thank you Michal for the quick fix.

I've replaced


with the file you have attached and now the correct math is generated.

Here is the new HTML now

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang='en-US' xml:lang='en-US'>
<meta charset='utf-8' />
<meta content='TeX4ht (https://tug.org/tex4ht/)' name='generator' />
<meta content='width=device-width,initial-scale=1' name='viewport' />
<link href='foo.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' />
<meta content='foo.tex' name='src' />
<script>window.MathJax = { tex: { tags: "ams", }, }; </script>
  <script async='async' id='MathJax-script' src='https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/mathjax@3/es5/tex-chtml-full.js' type='text/javascript'></script>
<!-- l. 9 --><p class='noindent'>\[ \frac {\partial u}{\partial x}=0 \]

Which renders correctly. I will soon start a full build on a
large file which takes 9 hrs to finish compiling and check
again also.

Best regards
