Unfortunately, some of them are within an environment, i.e. the TeX source
uses something like:
$ ls -l
-rw-rw-r-\/- 1 foka foka 3939 May 23 23:19 02.txt.1
Yes, I know, maybe there are better ways to do these things, but it would
be too much work to change the existing document. Besides, it works
perfectly with LaTeX2e.
If I recall correctly \verb|...| can't be used within an environment.
Anyhow, the above would be translated to "-rw-rw-r-", i.e. LaTeX2HTML
neglects the \/, changing -\/- to --, which got interpreted as an en-dash,
and becomes "-" in the final HTML output.

Thanks a lot. If you could fix the "-\/-\/-" bug too, that would be
wonderful. Thanks! :-)
Incidentally, there's a similar example where \/ didn't work, but
\textcompwordmark worked. e.g.
data >> ~/logout-time
is coded in the original TeX source as:
And it works great! I tried to substitute \textcompwordmark with \/,
and the ">>" got lumped into an ligature in the LaTeX2HTML output.
