Something is off here.  This variable should not be present unless you
are using an older Org version.  AFAICK, if this is true, your solution
(1) should not work.  Maybe it works by accident?  It would be helpful
if you could provide the org-version and how you install Org.

That said, I do not think the HTML backend supports the :options
property in an #+attr_html line.  The manual lists it under "LaTeX
specific attributes" (disclaimer: I use the HTML backend sparringly).

We don't do that here.  IMO, this community is one of the most accepting
and friendly out there.  ;)

Hope this helps,
