# [l2h] Ignoring \paragraph

Hi All,

In mid April I asked a question on this newsgroup and promptly got an answer
from Shigeharu TAKENO.  I never adequately thanked him so here is my big
THANK YOU.  I also want to thank Ross More  for keeping this mailing list
alive and for keeping a sharp eye on the l2h script.

Unfortunately, I don't do (or read) Perl and, being a fan of Python, I am not
likely to learn Perl at this late hour in my life.  So my comprehension of
l2h is very limited and I do need help - again.

I have a book manuscript in LaTex.  I am displaying it on my website
(http://www.pcug.org.au/~akabaila) after translation to html by l2h script.
(I use suse10.0 or 10.1 Linux and "Kile" as the LaTex client.  It does
include latex2html script that is invoked by a menu item in "Kile").

Generally speaking, l2h translation does a magnificent job.  However, the
separate page creation can be a problem.  In several places, I have very
small examples in the text and have marked them as \paragraph for the
statement of example AND for the solution.  l2h creates a separate page for
each paragraph, so I end up with some pages that only have one or  two lines
text.  So I would like latex2html "ignore" \paragraph moniker as far as page
creation is concerned.

I had a look at the l2hconf.pm file (long and well commented), but can not
find how to tell l2h to "ignore" \paragraph.

There is no way that I know to specify a small heading, other than paragraph.
(\emph is really not suitable for that).  How can I stop the latex2html
creating a separate page for each paragraph?  Is there an alternative way in
LaTex markup to create headers for paragraphs that do not signal to
latex2html to create a separate page?

Does anybody else have a similar experience or is it just my old ignorance of
the tools that are on my desktop?

I would be most grateful to any suggestions and answers,

OldAl
