I tried this before but we're using the XeLaTeX engine along with the
fontspec and polyglossia packages.  This causes htxelatex to fail.

At this point, I think our best bet is to revise our toolchain.
Instead of going from XeLaTeX to PDF, we should go from, say, Docbook
to XeLaTeX to PDF and Docbook to HTML.  (Or some other source format
in place of Docbook.)

I'm certainly open to ideas or suggestions.  If anyone would like to
join the investigation, I'll be glad for the help.
