Not easily, no.  Afaik htmlfontify always creates a complete HTML
document, which htmlize doesn't.  Also, htmlize can format parts of a
buffer. which htmlfontify can't.

Additionally htmlfontify also requires several external tools
(according to the man page) which might not be available on all
platform Emacs and org-mode is used on:

- a copy of “find” which provides the “-path” predicate
- a copy of “sed”
- a copy of the “file” command

A switch to htmlfontify might end up in rewriting a good part of
htmlfontify or some very ugly hacks.


If Hrvoje Niksic has or is willing to sign the copyright assignment
documents it will be easier to put htmlize.el into Emacs.


Best regards
Robert
