Please consider using hevea as a replacement of latex2html. It is
currently used (by the respective upstream authors) to produce
html versions of the manual of OCaml and GNU Prolog.
I don't know what the special features of latex2html are, but
if you tell me what special needs you have I can try to check
if it can be done with hevea.
