Are you using either

The current default is  HTML version 3.2,
for which <div> and <span> were not yet valid tags.
If you request HTML version 4.x then many more <div> and <span> tags are
created, and it then becomes much easier to apply CSS styles.

You can edit the  <document-name>.css  file
 -- this also works with  HTML 3.2 --
or use
             ^^^^^^---- stylesheet id
and the
command, to add CSS specifications to the stylesheet
(provided you have deleted the previous one).

 3rd ?
I've not seen previous requests.
The ability to manipulate CSS has been part of LaTeX2HTML
for several years now. It is described in:
   The LaTeX Web Companion  (Addison-Wesley)
