Thanks. There are some cute ideas programmed into that, to make
extensive use of hyperlinks and the \label/ref mechanism.

You should already have the coding for it, as part of the LaTeX2HTML
docs that come with the distribution, in the  docs/ subdirectory.
It's towards the end of  docs/manual.tex .

It works as follows:


%  Alphabetization and navigation within the index
%  ...these special index entries must come *after* the  \printindex
%  else half of the hyperlinks will point to the preceding page.
 \htmlref{\HTML{SUB}{\LARGE #3}}{AZ}\htmlref{_}{#4}\label{#5}| }}

%% This is an alphabetical navigation panel.
\htmlref{\$}{doll} \htmlref{.}{dot} \htmlref{A}{A}
 \htmlref{B}{B} \htmlref{C}{C} \htmlref{D}{D} \htmlref{E}{E}
 \htmlref{G}{G} \htmlref{H}{H} \htmlref{I}{I} \htmlref{J}{K}
 \htmlref{L}{L} \htmlref{M}{M} \htmlref{N}{N} \htmlref{O}{O}
 \htmlref{Q}{R} \htmlref{R}{R} \htmlref{S}{S} \htmlref{T}{T}
 \htmlref{V}{V} \htmlref{W}{W} \htmlref{X}{X} \htmlref{Y}{Z}
\htmlrule[all]| }

I always leave the LaTeX source accessible in the directory
where the web-pages were generated and displayed, as the
LaTeX2HTML default location. Hence you can deduce the name
of the source document from that of the directory.

Hope this helps,
