This syntax is quite wrong!
It should be:

No it wasn't --- it was having too many redundant braces,
of which one pair separated a macro from its intended argument.

If it's on the same page, then the http://  isn't needed,
you just need   #<name>.

If it's another page in the same directory, then again
it isn't needed, just give the page-name.

If you want to use a symbolic \label that's in your LaTeX code,
then  \htmlref  is the macro to use, not \htmladdnormallink .
Also, \hyperref  can be used, but check the LaTeX2HTML
documentation for the required number of arguments and what
they are used for; and ...

Yes -- get the syntax correct.
That's always a good start.

  ... completely ignore this advice.
It does absolutely nothing for the LaTeX2HTML translation.
It can only affect processing of your document with LaTeX itself.

Besides, the  html.sty  package already calls on  hyperref  when
processing with pdfTeX as the engine. This is done at an
appropriate time so that slight incompatibilities can be fixed.
If you try mixing the two packages yourself, it can lead to
serious problems that cannot be solved easily.

Hope this helps,
