Seems to be rather a Lyx question than a latex2html one, but...
here is what I understood about this problem.

Lyx produces its own encodeing for an url as:
Typographically, it prints anchor as is and URL with the url.sty
wrapping to avoid problems with long words.

So everything is there to produce a good hypertext, but the
exported latex does not know \htmladdnormallink or its typographical
version \htmladdnormallinkfoot...

So two ways to deal with it:
 - write e translator for \htmlurl to produce <A HREF="URL">anchor</A>
 - process the lyx file to create the right code using html.sty
I have here a workaround using the second approach, which puts
a lot of ERT (i.e. plain (La)TeX commands) in the original LyX file. 
Hope this helps.
