A few days ago I complained that latex2html does not grok
>* \newtheorem{Main Lemma}{Main Lemma}

Thanks to all who responded.
I was surprised to find out that -- despite the fact that LaTeX never
warned be about this, let alone gave an error message --
this is indeed illegal LaTeX. Already Lamport's latex209 book
says that environment names have to consist of letters only.
Too bad. So far I have used {Definition and Fact}, {Notation},
{More Notation} and {Abuse of Notation} freely as (seemingly, to me)
natural names for theorem environments. I guess I will have to
join the abbreviationists and write DaF, Nt, MNt and AoN in the future...
Live and learn.
