[NTG-pdftex] useless error message

Hi,
I have a few problems with tex4ht.  I don't know much about it so I
depend on the error messages I get.

I'm using 
    This is pdfeTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.30.3-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.5)

That's what I got:
__________________________________________________________________
(/ext/TL-src/Master/texmf-vntex/tex/latex/vntex/t5cmr.fd)
! pdfTeX error (\pdfobj): used while \pdfoutput is not set.
reserved at a ->immediate pdfobj 
                              stream file {reserved at f }expandafter xdef csna...
l.100 \fontencoding\encodingdefault\selectfont
__________________________________________________________________

What does "\pdfoutput is not set" want to tell me?

Is it undefined?  Though tex4ht is based on latex, (which is in fact
pdfelatex) any .tex file can contain something like
\let\pdfoutput\undefined.

Or does it mean that it is set to 0?


Anyway, the message is useless and should either be

! pdfTeX error (\pdfobj): used while \pdfoutput is undefined.

or

! pdfTeX error (\pdfobj): used while \pdfoutput=<value>.

Regards,
  Reinhard

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
