Yes. This approach is working perfectly however it implies two things
that I'm not sure I can/will have :
1) time to modify all the existing doc (several hundreds of pages and 50
or so files)
2) have every developper change to generate valid latex2html code.

Yes and that is exactly what I was looking for !

The problem was completely solved when I mention my version of

latex2html -v
This is LaTeX2HTML Version 2K.1beta (1.62)
by Nikos Drakos, Computer Based Learning Unit, University of Leeds.

Ross Moore suggest that I upgrade certain packages :
>  $LATEX2HTMLDIR/styles/{graphics,graphicx,graphixx,graphics-support}.perl

and after doing so, it worked exactly as expected and as you explained
it to me : images are copied into the directory where l2h generate it's
files and links are relative so that it can easily be transferred to the
web server and fullt functionnal at tha point.

Thank you very much for your help.
