I've found that this issue was caused by the new LaTeX hook system, respective the fact that we redefined \@begindocumenthook to execute some code that fixes similar cases. I've modified tex4ht.sty to use new hooks and it seems to work correctly now.

Hi Nasser,

thanks for the report. I've posted my answer to TeX.sx and updated TeX4ht source codes.

I do not know if this is new error, caused by latest TL update. But this is first time I see it.

This MWE compiles with no problem with lualatex, but gives

(/usr/local/texlive/2020/texmf-dist/tex/latex/base/ts1cmr.fd) (/usr/local/texlive/2020/texmf-dist/tex/latex/graphics/graphicx.sty (/usr/local/texlive/2020/texmf-dist/tex/generic/tex4ht/graphics-hooks.4ht) (/usr/local/texlive/2020/texmf-dist/tex/latex/graphics/graphics.sty

When compiled with tex4ht. This is the smallest example I could make it to show the error. The Latex is auto-generated.

------------
\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{mathtools}

\begin{document}
\begin{align*}
\frac{1}{18} \, \sqrt{3} \log\left(\frac{{\left| 6 \, x - 2 \, \sqrt{3} \right|}}
{{\left| 6 \, x + 2 \, \sqrt{3} \right|}}\right) - \frac{1}{18} \, \sqrt{3}
\log\left(-\frac{{\left| -6 \, x - 8 \, \sqrt{3} + 6 \, \sqrt{x^{2} + 1} - \frac{6}{x - \sqrt{x^{2} + 1}} \right|}}
{2 \, {\left(3 \, x - 4 \, \sqrt{3} - 3 \, \sqrt{x^{2} + 1} + \frac{3}{x - \sqrt{x^{2} + 1}}\right)}}\right)
- \frac{4 \, {\left(x - \sqrt{x^{2} + 1} + \frac{1}{x - \sqrt{x^{2} + 1}}\right)}}
{3 \, {\left(3 \, {\left(x - \sqrt{x^{2} + 1} +
\frac{1}{x - \sqrt{x^{2} + 1}}\right)}^{2} - 16\right)}} - \frac{4 \, x}{3 \, {\left(3 \, x^{2} - 1\right)}}
\end{align*}
\end{document}
--------------------------

And now I compile using:

make4ht -ulm default -a debug foo5.tex "htm"
it gives
