Try the following file:





<varepsilon\> is exported as &#x03F5;, but this the lunate epsilon.
<epsilon\> is exported as &epsilon;, which is printed as the varepsilon in 
latex and texmacs.

But I now understand where confusion comes from.
What is called \varepsilon in latex is the ordinary &epsilon; in html.
What is called \epsilon in latex is the lunate epsilon (03F5) in html.

I would like to suggest to switch them in the html-exportation, but maybe a 
unicode expert will tell me otherwise.
