OK; my previous email explains the difficulty involved with this.
I'll try to devise some coding that will help cope better.

This was `fixed' some time ago, for non-AMS documents.
However, \usepackage{amsmath} causes that coding to be over-ridden and
the problem returns.  I've just updated  amsmath.perl  to fix this.
The URL for the next bug actually provides an example of the fix for this
one too.

This is not actually a bug in LaTeX2HTML, but in the coding
of amsmath.sty ; however, consequences of the bug are normally
quite trivial, and seem to matter only when using LaTeX2HTML.

See:  http://www-texdev.ics.mq.edu.au/DebianBugs/cropping/
for a fuller description of the problem and solution.

I'll work through these one-by-one.
