TeX4ht keeps the information about indentation in the generated file.
indented paragraphs have class "indent", not indented have class
"noindent". So it is easy to style them using CSS. The "p-indent"
option will make them indented, without vertical spaces.

It is indeed nice. TeX4ht don't assume any fonts in the generated
files, but you can easily select fonts using CSS:

\Css{body{font-family: "Charis SIL", "Bitstream Charter", "New Century
Schoolbook", "Century Schoolbook", "Century Schoolbook L", Georgia,
