[l2h] buglett?

Hello,

I'm using a somewhat oldish version (99.1) so I don't know if this
report has still any use.

My scenario is as follows.

I translate a {slides} latex document (yes, I know that there are
smarter ways...). I change the document class to {article} in the
Makefile and all works quite nicely.

the HTML version, the latex source for each slide environment has the
following template:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%
% S L I D E %
%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\begin{htmlonly}
\section[Slide n. \thesection: Title of this slide]{}
\end{htmlonly}
\begin{slide}

...

\end{slide}

Here comes the (actually not that very tremendous) problem. If the
mandatory arg of the \section command is empty (like above), then
in the HTML I get a .' as the section title. In order to avoid the
dot, something invisible must be placed inside the braces, e.g.:

\section[Slide n. \thesection: Title of this slide]{ }
(blank here) -----------------^

Is this a buglett (or a feature :))?
If so, does my report still apply to the latest versions of l2h?
If so, is there a quick fix?
If so, could anybody send it to me?

I thank you very much in advance for any help.

Ciao
Gabriele
