Hi,

I have a lot of problems with latex2html. We moved from SuSe Linux 6.2
(latex2html 98.1p7) to SuSe Linux 7.1 (latex2html 99beta8). Meanwhile
we upgraded latex2html to 2K.1 beta (1.55) from CTAN.

A lot of documents which worked under 98.1p7 do not work under the 99-
or 2K-version anymore. We have experienced several problems:

- graphics
latex2html complains that a lot graphics (included with
\includegraphics) are not available:

Error while converting image

Error: Cannot read 'exercises_x4htmlimg83.gif': Datei oder Verzeichnis
nicht gefunden
Converting image #56
pstoimg: Error: Cannot find file "/tmp/l2h6959/image056.ps": Datei oder
Verzeichnis nicht gefunden

A colleauge of mine found a solution to this problem, if I delete all
\latex{...} commands from my document then it runs without problems
under 2K.1. But of course i do not want to do this.

I also get the following:

Unknown commands: begin item

- LaTeX macros

We have a large set a LaTeX Macros and some do not work anymore as
expected, e.g.

\newcommand{\glref}[3]{%
\label{#2}
\html{
\begin{rawhtml}
Lecture
@
\end{rawhtml}
\glreftitle
\begin{rawhtml}
@
0
@
-
@
0
@
\end{rawhtml}
#3
\begin{rawhtml}
@
-
@
@
\end{rawhtml}
#1
\begin{rawhtml}
@
\end{rawhtml}
\htmlref{#1}{#3}
\begin{rawhtml}
\end{rawhtml}
}\ \\[2mm]}

It works well with 98.1p7, but under 99- or 2K-version I get
instead of @ a lot of garbage there. And again I noticed that
under unknown commands appears 'begin'.

Anything I could do ??? I also would like to understand why I get
"Unkown commands" and how can I figure out where it comes from and
how I can repair it.

Thanks for any help
