Hi Ross and Jens,

thanks for your replies.

Regard it as a traditional name, not as a discrimination of LaTeX2HTML.
As I tried to describe, it's not bad at all. I'm even maintaining
software inside it. :)

Finally, we agree! ;-)

OK. Without your note "except some aspects of the 1st" I would close
this bug immediately. But maybe I just keep it open until you finished
this (I guess you meant "the 3rd"?):

Besides, \HTMLsetenv{LOCAL_ICONS}{1} works quite well, but possibly just
by chance. So I will possibly close the bug anyway. Documentation states
"Warning: This is intended for Perl programmers only. Use this command
at your own risk!". This is obviously contrary to the idea of
configuring LaTeX2HTML by \HTMLsetenv. :)


OK. Another one:


Thanks again.
