This refers to Akira's statement:

If they are going to be omitted, then that fact _must_ be
better documented. Running "texdoc tex4ht" produces a page
that explicitely states to run "oolatex filename".

You have to click on "calling commands" search down some
ways to find the command mk4ht, which seems to be presented as
an optional interface (rather than a requirement).
The requirement to run mk4ht should be on page 1.
