yes: for a start, it encouraged me to try altering my LaTeX in case that
would help.  it seems to cause problems if i place commands such as
\excludecomment{versiona} or \begin{versiona} in the middle (or end) of
a line, so i've now put each at the start of a new line.  now the only
thing that doesn't work the way i'd like is that each (included) comment
environment is turned into an image: they're perfectly good images, but
images weren't necessary, simple HTML could have done the job.  is this
what you expect latex2html to do?  is it difficult to stop it doing it?

a minimal example:

===================== start =====================




\begin{versionpriv}Secret info
\begin{versionpub}[Omitted from online version]

====================== end ======================

to the original poster: if you're seeing different problems, please go
ahead and post your own example.
