Sorry, I didn't recognise the connection.

OK. In that case, you should not change the $EXTN at all.
This will change the file-names used as URLs within the served-up documents.
Hyperlinks will not work, calling .tpt files, instead of .html files.
It sounds like you are needing to post-process the files that LaTeX2HTML
creates, so as to become templates for your serving mechanism.
This can be done with shell scripts, surely.
There is no reason to have LaTeX2HTML involved with that step of
the task. It probably complicates, rather than making it easier.
Hope this helps,
