hy again,

i found another strange behavior in the new 99.2beta5.
in my latex file i have the following two lines:


unfortuantely only the first one makes its way down to 'images.tex'.
the second one gets slightly scrumbled:

\renewcommand{}}{\symbol{125}}%   <--- NO MORE SLASH HERE TO ESCAPE '}'

it seems as if the slash in the second line was eaten by latex2html,
thus leading to a stack owerflow error in tex.
unfortunately i couldn't find the place in latex2html where this 
happens until now.

can anybody help?
