Among the existing features are:

 A.  There is the command  \HTMLset{<variable>}{<value>}
     that allows a Perl variable to be set directly.
     But that's really not very useful as a high-level feature.

 B.  Using the  'Makefile'  facility, at least under Unix,
     is probably the easiest method.

     That lets you record and use command-line switches for your jobs,
     even when they reside in the same directory.

 C.  The switch:   -init-file <filename>  
     is probably the most useful. Have a different init-file for each
     job, in so far as they differ in some settings.
     ( .latex2html-init  can take care of those common to all.)
     Then use the Makefile to run each job. On systems without  `make' 
     then a 1 or 2 line .bat or .com file should be a fair replacement.

Hmm; I thought that I'd catered for that too --- at least in my own testing.
Did you upgrade to the latest revision at  www.latex2html.org ?
Or did you just use a small quick fix that I posted to you ?
Can you please point me to an example; 
having the source would help also, for testing.

All the best,
