No, this changes nothing. BTW, please note that "^3" is a complete rubbish.

This works!

Isn't this rather confusing? Where is it documented?

With some effort I am able to reproduce the old configuration, but I
definitely haven't done anything special in configuration files.

I think that the earlier versions (at least some of them) simply
recognized the option of `inputenc' package. The option is now ignored
- is it intentional?

To conclude: for the time being I am quite satisfied as I can continue
to use latex2html. However, the present handling of different
character codes should not be considered as the final solution.
