[l2h] Problem with multilingual documents with german

Hello *,

we have encountered a problem with the German umlauts written as 
"a, "o, ... in a multilingual document:

%--- snip ------------------------


\section{test 1}
wrong: "a

\section{test 2}
correct: "a

%--- snap ------------------------

Though the selected language is German, the umlaut in section "test 1" is
written as "a (quotation mark, letter a). Adding another \selectlanguage
as in section "test 2" gives a correct umlaut. We need a \selectlanguage
after each sectioning command.

When I change the order of language options for babel to:


everything comes out correctly.

I have used:

This is LaTeX2HTML Version 2002-2-1 (1.70)
by Nikos Drakos, Computer Based Learning Unit, University of Leeds.

and latex2html was called as

latex2html -split 0 -info 0 test.tex

Any hints (besides using the option german as last option for babel)?

Best wishes,
