There are two issues with French babel:

1. html entity   is inserted before colon. This causes validation error
in some xml environments, where this entity is not defined, for example in
epub3. macro \:nbsp should be used instead. Patch for the file
tex4ht-html4.tex is provided in the attachment.

2. french babel provides some macros which put some text to the superscript.
standard macros for superscripts aren't used, so these superscripts doesn't
show in the html output. There is a fix for this error:

\Configure{frenchup}{\HCode{<sup class="french">}}{\HCode{</sup>}}

This code should be put to the file tex4ht-4ht.tex, section frenchb.ldf.
Unfortunately, I don't really understand structure of tex4ht literate sources
and my attemps to process them for generating the output files end with
errors, so I posted this only as a code snippet.
