Hi Michal - I've never used tocloft, but it sounds sensible to me.

Do you mind contributing the work to TUG, i.e., copyright TUG instead of you personally? Not that it's a big deal either way.

I provided more detailed answer in the linked question in TeX.sx. tocloft package tries to redefine internal LaTeX TOC mechanism, but this break tex4ht support for TOC. Because tex4ht uses its own mechanism for TOC configuration, I think best approach is to disable tocloft when tex4ht is used. I've created minimal tocloft.4ht file for this purpose. Patch for tex4ht literate sources is attached.

(file #173)

This MWE does not generate a table of contents in the HTML file generated by htlatex

\usepackage{tocloft} %comment this to see toc
some text 1
some text 2

if tocloft is not used, then toc will show up in html.

command to compile is

htlatex foo.tex

Then view the file foo.html in same folder to see the missing toc.
