From my online document, you can download the version I was (and am)
using. It is a patch of a 2002 version of LaTeX2HTML. I'm glad to
hear a Version 2008 now exists. You might point the maintainer(s) to
my documentation of problems and workarounds, since it sounds like
they haven't yet traversed them all. I look forward to upgrading
myself once all known bugs are fixed. - jos
