Well. I assume that there is no way to make LaTeX2HTML
interpolate \input inside the .bbl file?

\begin{thebibliography} and \end{thebibliography} is not required
since it's already in the .bbl.

You mean I should leave the \bibliography{<filename>} out, use
sed to add \bibdata{} to the .aux and then simply input the .bbl?
Doesn't work: I'm getting a nice bibliography in the PDF output
(same as before) but references in the HTML output look like
[#!weber:success_of_os!#] and there's no bibliography at all.

Is there a way to insert commands into the .tex file that are
only interpreted by LaTeX2HTML?
