There are plenty of online tutorials and books available to help out

If your document is foo.tex, LaTeX2HTML will normally general the
files foo/foo.html and foo/foo.css (and others); all you need to do is
copy your stylesheet (another .css file) on top of the foo/foo.css

You can use the .l2hinit file or specify additional "-init
myperl.perl" options to LaTeX2HTML.

The hard part for me was using Perl, and figuring out just what Perl
I needed to write, but I try and do a lot of fairly tedious stuff.
