There were some problems with \input and/or \include on some systems,
with some versions of LaTeX2HTML.

I've processed your file with v99.1 at:


I cannot detect any problem with it.
You can update LaTeX2HTML from the archives at:

If LaTeX2HTML doesn't need any of those definitions,
then rename the file to  html_style.sty .
Now LaTeX will read it, but LaTeX2HTML will not.

Most likely it was a known problem that has been fixed already.
Thanks for the report.

Hope this helps,
