I've just updated Miktex and it seems that this issue is fixed now.

It seems that Miktex is still not updated. There it also some strange bug that happens with tex4ebook: https://tex.stackexchange.com/q/563644/2891

TeX4ht files in Miktex are probably too old. I've sent a mail with an update to the Miktex maintainer, so it should be fixed soon hopefully.

Possibly related to #475. The following text is adapted from my question in the Tex StackExchange.

I'm running a document which compiles to HTML using make4ht + LuaLaTeX.

When testing both on Ubuntu, it works flawlessly, but when the same document is ran on Windows 10 with MiKTeX, I get a bunch of `"Unsupported font"` errors.

While making a minimal example, I realized this only happened when I imported the `polyglossia` package.

A minimal example of such document:
Compiled through (using v0.3e from MikTeX):


This is a fresh installation of Windows 10 running latest MiKTeX, installed directly from their website. The command was run under PowerShell. The full output of make4ht can be found on this gist.

I've tried changing fonts with no luck, as well as playing with MiKTex settings.
