It I understand it correctly, the letters that are listed in the argument after accent type are ignored. So pictures are created for all F characters, but not for \hat u. I don't know why there are ignored characters just for some accents, but these ignored characters obviously aren't handled correctly, so I've just removed them from the sources.

Thanks for the report and sorry for a late reply.

Look at $\hat u$.
Let's see $\widehat{\mathcal F}=\hat F=\bar F=\tilde F=\overline F$.

Compile with tex4ebook with parameter new-accents, accent-, the accents in the second line are rendered well. However, the accent $\hat u$ is rendered incorrectly. I look at the code of html4.4ht, seemingly AEIOUaeiou are treated differently than other alphabets (say F in the seond line). I guess that this is the reason for the incorrect rendering:

\:CheckOption{accent-} \if:Option
