Apologies, I posted my comment before testing your example code. It already works as expected with the latest version of biblatex.4ht. I got the following output for your MWE:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=us-ascii">
<meta name="generator" content="TeX4ht (http://www.tug.org/tex4ht/)">
<meta name="originator" content="TeX4ht http://www.tug.org/tex4ht/)">
<!-- html -->
<meta name="src" content="kristian1.tex">
<meta name="date" content="2013-03-24 10:54:00">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="kristian1.css">

<p class="noindent"><a href="https://www.tug.org/tex4ht/"><span lass=

Attached is biblatex-2.5.4ht which you may rename to biblatex.4ht and try your document.

Do we really need \href{https://www.tug.org/tex4ht}{\nolinkurl{tex4ht}}? Is it not \href{https://www.tug.org/tex4ht}{tex4ht} the correct format?

\nolinkurl{...} as per hyperref documentation is meant to print URL without a link.

Dear all,

The following example,


gives with pdf-latex (as it should) a link to https://www.tug.org/tex4ht/, with caption tex4ht.

However, the output of htlatex gives instead a local link to tex4ht, by generating the following output:


<!--l. 5--><p class="noindent" ><a
href="https://www.tug.org/tex4ht/" ><a
href="tex4ht" ><span


This seems only to happen if biblatex is loaded.

\href{...}{\nolinkurl{...}} is a typical construction e.g. in the defaultstyle of eprint-references in biblatex.

Best regards
