\url  works fine for me with LaTeX2HTML,

 1.  whether or not  \usepackage{url}  is requested
 2.  whether or not  \usepackage{html}  is requested

Similarly \htmlurl works as expected
(i.e. same as \url ) in the 4 cases.

Thus if \url or \htmlurl  fails for you with Lyx-generated source,
then either

 a. you have an out-of-date version of LaTeX2HTML
 b. your document has macros that upset the handling of \url
 c. Lyx adds macros that upset the handling of \url or has a different
    syntax for \htmlurl which confuses LaTeX2HTML

You're welcome.
Please send an example document that exhibits the bad behaviour,
or (better) send a URL where I can access the source, and perhaps
also see the result produced by LaTeX2HTML.

Hope this helps,
