My apologies. I appeared to me from the other messages in
this thread that it was TeX Live which had made the decision
to replace the separate oolatex with the mk4ht incantation.
I refer to this message fron Karl:

Also miktex 2.8 contains an oolatex command.
I know Karl said to report tex4ht issues to the tex4ht list,
but, as I said, itseemed it was a TL decision, which makes
it a TL issue.

I personally don't use tex4ht at all, and was just making
a point to those I thought were responsible. Ignore my
suggestion if the responsibility lies elsewhere.
