That should not happen.
The image should be placed with  <IMG ALIGN="Bottom" .... 
so that the base aligns with the bottom of adjacent text.

If this is not happening with your HTML files, then there
is something wrong with your installation of LaTeX2HTML.

How much above the baseline is it located ?
A large amount, or just a point or two?

If it's just a point or two, then the "shaving" step is not
being performed correctly, during image-processing with  pstoimg .

Can you post a URL to an example, so that I can get a better view
of what is happening. Put a copy of the screen log output into the
same (or parent) directory, with a name that can be easily guessed
from the document name.
Preferably run the job with  -debug  so that more messages are

Hope this helps,
