In what way does it not work with subfigure ?
If your subfigures are with a figure, the the default is for LaTeX2HTML
to make an image of the complete figure.

If you do not want this, then use the {makeimage} environment,
defined in the  html.sty  package.

 ... contents for an image .... (perhaps empty) 
 ...  other figure contents ...

Now the contents of the {makeimage} environment will be typeset
by LaTeX for an image, with everything else being handled as best
possible for HTML --- for {subfigure}s, this will mean a separate
image for each.

Having empty contents of the {makeimage} is a useful strategy,
that forces the LaTeX code inside the {figure} to be scanned
in detail. The resulting text and images are set inside
<TABLE>...</TABLE> tags in the resulting HTML.

If this does not give you an acceptable result, then please
post on the web an example document that:

 1. shows what LaTeX2HTML currently does;
 2. links to a .dvi, .ps or .pdf showing what you would like;
 3. links to your LaTeX source for testing;

then email a URL to this example.

That's a lot harder, since the expansion model for LaTeX2HTML cannot
guarantee to give the same result as TeX in many situations.
It all depends upon what type of calculation is being performed
to produce the condition being tested.

Please give an example of the kind of test you are performing,
and what kind of information is being handled (i.e. either being 
included or being left out) as a result of the test.

LaTeX2HTML provides conditional constructions;
 e.g.  \begin{htmlonly}   and  similarly for {latexonly} 

which usually allow all conditionals to be handled without need
to postprocess the HTML afterwards.

Hope this helps,
