Update to my previous message about italics footnotes when exported to
html with htlatex,.... (please see that message -- too much to
I've upgraded LyX to 1.6.5 (that's 1.6.7 to you Paul Sutton ;-) and
TexShop to 2.29 and the problems mentioned persist.

Yes there is a way to get your html footnotes on the same page. If
you're using htlatex / tex4ht the converter line for latex->html is:
htlatex $$i "xhtml,fn-in"
Took me ages to find that "fn-in" parameter. The documentation of
htlatex is pretty cryptic. But it works if you don't mind...
The problem with it which I haven't been able to solve is that the
footnotes come out in italics. :-( But at least they're on the same
To get rid of the italics edit the .css file and find the
div.footnotes line and get rid of the "font-style: italic;"
If you don't mind that extra hassle the results are perfect.
Oddly, when htlatex is run (from the command line rather than from
LyX-export) on the same latex file it does not add the italics to the
footnotes but just nicely puts them in-line where they should be.
I've searched and searched every shred of documentation I could find
to find a parameter that would put the footnotes in normal text. But
apparently it's not in the htlatex utility itself but in something
that happens with the LyX export.
Since the utility itself does not have this problem, it seems like a
bug in the exporting in LyX. But I'm not reporting it as a bug yet
because I'm using LyX 1.6.2. (Crossing my fingers that 1.6.5 doesn't
continue the problem.)
The other html converter I've used with LyX is tth. It's very good.
Does the footnotes as you'd expect. The problem with it though is it
won't do tables of contents and will only work with encapsulated
postscript graphic files. (.eps) -- no .png, .jpg or any others.
The other oddity which the author says is not needed is that it
doesn't generate head and body tags unless you include a 'w1'
parameter. But that solves it fine. The converter command line is:
tth -w1 $$i
(or omit the -w1 if you don't care about the head and body tags)
The documentation for tth is far easier. And the program is reliable
if its short-comings don't affect you. There's a free version for
Despite the cryptic documentation and a now deceased author, htlatex
works great except for the italics with in-line footnotes -- which
I've found is a LyX -- not htlatex problem.
If this has been fixed, or if there's a solution, I'd sure like to know.
I'd also need a way to add a body - margin line either in .css or the
.html file without having to enter them manually. That may be too much
to wish for. But if anyone knows how, I'd really appreciate knowing
that too! (I know the syntax for both html and css -- just need to
know if there's a way to generate one or the other with export.)
Anyway, I hope the above is helpful.
Quoting "Yaron Y. Goland" <ya...@goland.org>:
The articles I create with LyX are destined for my blog and form a
single piece of HTML. But when I export to HTML any footnotes I have
get generated on a separate HTML page. Is there anyway to configure
the HTML exporter so that it will generate the footnotes at the end of
the main HTML page and then use anchors to navigate to them?
