[l2h] Problem with \renewcommand

Dear L2H-ers

version: 99.2alpha9
system:  Redhat 5.2/Intel 2.0.37 kernel

% Using \renewcommand{\xyz}[1]{\textbf{#1}}
% is another variant that does not work as expected.
\newcommand{\xyz}{abc def}
\xyz{Session} 1999-2000


\xyz{Session} 2000-2001

The version as submitted generates error messages that
I cannot understand, one in the main file and another
in the include file. The text in the main file does not
acquire the bold font (consistently with the message).

The text in the second file does get emboldened
despite the message.

? brace missing for \textbf



The relevant portion of the bug.html file is:

Session 1999-2000		#### this bit should have Bold tags as well

<B>Session</B> 2000-2001

Can anyone explain what's going on ?  Latex works as expected

Many thanks
