dwww is only one such program. Another program is latex2html:
(I suspect that usr/lib is old, but remains on my system).
The problem here (as far is I am aware), is that the maintainer of
latex2html wants the files to be viewable via "file:" and "http:".
See /usr/doc/latex2html/README.debian.gz for details.
