Brian, as am amateur struggling to understand the lwarp manual, perhaps
my blunders will be helpful.

I went to the test_suite. I switched from warpprint to warpHTML; from book to
article; uncommented the line \newbool{dotitlingpage}; uncommented
\booltrue{dotitlingpage} . Then compiled. 

Same fatal error as before, so I comment
\providecommand{\CaptionSeparator}{:} line in test_suite lwarp.style
file. Now only two non-fatal errors:

The compilation finishes. However, no test_suite.html file showed up in
the test_suite folder. Or is the output sent to sample_output directory?
I displayed a couple of them there and saw what I expected. I looked at
the test_suite.pdf and it displays html markups, which is not what I

In terms of my working document, following the manual I see that I need
to insert this environment into the preface, but failed to understand
what packages I need to include within it. I gather than inputenc and
fontenc are accessed by default, but do I need an obvious package such
as {mathptmx}? {biblatex} is obviously needed for html, and so should
the \usepackage for it be moved into the warpHTML environment? Do I need
commands like pagenumbering{arabic}?
