The problem is that we need to put the title earlier than Mdframed does that. There is a bug in TeX4ht config file for Mdframed that causes double title in the HTML file. Try the attached mdframed.4ht file. Another issue is that the counter is updated after TeX4ht puts the title, so you will get incorrect frame number even with the fixed mdframed.4ht file. It needs to be fixed in your TeX file. The updated file is also attached.

I'm trying to use the mdframed package with tex4htmtl to create numbered "Example" boxes. The result is as expected with PDFLatex, but the resulting HTML code shows the counter twice as so:

<div class='mdframed' id='mdframed-1'>
<!-- l. 37 --><p class='noindent'><span class='cmbx-10x-x-109'>Example 0.0.0 ”test”</span><a id='x1-2r1'></a>
</p><!-- l. 38 --><p class='noindent'>This is a test.
</p><!-- l. 39 --><p class='noindent'><span class='cmbx-10x-x-109'>Example 0.0.1</span></p>

Here, the second <span> at the end is undesired and unnecessarily increases the counter ("Example 0.0.1"). The Latex code below reproduces the result:


\mdfsetup{skipbelow=2pt, backgroundcolor=gray!8, linecolor=black!40}



%% set the counter for your environment

%% define the style

%% setup the environments
%%% with number
frametitlefont={\bfseries Example~\theexample\quad},

This is a test.
