Hell Ross;

I am not sure I understand. Can you please elaborate?

I put the screen shot here:

Other than the gray background (that is a separate issue, need
to resolve), it seems to have worked, in the sense that I do
see that math equation and I see the verbatim.

This does NOT work. I just tried it.

---------------------------
\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{html}
\usepackage{verbatim}
\begin{document}
\verb|test|
\end{document}
-----------------------

latex2html t.tex

produces an empty web page. no 'test' text in it. I always had
problems getting \verb to work like this, that is what I
use \begin{verbstim} and \end{verbatim}. Does the above
work on your end? i.e generate 'test' in the HTML?
