Yes; no-one has written the required Perl support for macros
defined in ArabTeX.

By setting $ACCENT_IMAGES = 'textrm'; then you should get an
attempt to make an image of the  'h with dot below' character,
if this is really what you want -- but I suspect not.

Does your file contain a transliteration of the arabic script,
or macros resulting from use of a pre-processor ?

If the latter, then the best that LaTeX2HTML could do is to make
images of those portions which are to be arabic scripts.
If the former, then it is much harder; LaTeX2HTML would need to
be programmed to run the pre-processor, before making images.

The programming for this has yet to be done.

Yes; I remember the question.
The answer is the same. It needs someone familiar with ArabTeX
and arabic scripts to help do the work and do much testing.

Hope this helps,
