Hi anybody,

I have sent this mail before but nobody answere. Since my problem didn't
solve on its own, I am asking again for your help.

We have to port our help files, written in LaTeX and compiled to HTML
with LaTeXHTML  to Windows. Sorry, but we really have to.

In the Windows help system, links are done with active-x controls and
look like this

<Object type="application/x-oleobject"
        <param name="Keyword" value="test">

<Object type="application/x-oleobject"
        <param name="Keyword" value="another test">

What I like to do is wite some perl code, which produces exactly this,
when a LaTeX command like

\tetIndex{test} \tetIndex{another test}

is encountered.

For LaTeX I have defined the command \tetIndex to work like \index
For the HTML side I tried to use the command \HTMLcode

{OBJECT}{\HTMLcode[name=Keyword value="#1"]{PARAM}}}}

I tried the command \index{test}. On the LaTeX side it works fine, but
in HTML I am not so happy.

And this is what I currently get:

<OBJECT><PARAM NAME="Keyword" NAME="value=test'"></OBJECT>

TYPE and CLASSID are discarded for the OBJECT-tag, the value attribute
for the PARAM tag is treated incorrectly.

I looked in the version directory of l2h in order to edit the
html-4.0.pl but I didn't exactly understand how to perform the correct

I would be very grateful for any hint how to solve this problem.
This is LaTeX2HTML Version 99.1 release (March 30, 1999) that I use

Thanks in advance
