Just use:

  latex2html -split 0 -no_footnode  -no_navigation   mydocument.tex

See how that works, and list the things that you might want done differently.
There should be a switch to accommodate each of those things.

If the command-line starts to get too long,
then you can think about using an initialisation file instead.

The best advice is "don't expect to get everything exactly right first time".
Try it out, then work on the differences.

Hope this helps,
