Right now, you have this package in the archive:

Description: A Perl script that converts html files to latex
 gnuhtml2latex is a Perl script that converts html files to latex
 files. It takes list of .html files as arguments and make .tex
 ones. Can also convert html stdin to latex stdout.

Now, as the author says in the header: It is VERY ALPHA. It kind of
works, but is far from perfect. I adopted this package a long time
ago (Jun 2003), and there is no upstream activity at all. I have no
bug reports. Please compare html2latex to this package to see if they
provide the same functionality or if one of them contains the other
