Hi Ross,

No. It seems that HTML2LaTeX renders a picture from an
\input{<something>.bbl}, at least if it's a small bbl-file. It
fails to render the picture if it's a really big one. The
bibliography I am working on makes up about 400 pages.

Didn't work. I'have provided a small example.

Thanks for that.

Okay, here we go:


It consists of a bibliography with two absurd entries. Each of
them has an abstract (abstract1.tex and abstract2.tex). I have
provided a small .tex file (index.tex), a Makefile to show you
what I am usually doing and the results of the build script on my
system (index.pdf and index/index.html).

Thanks in advance,
J. Tobias
