Another good one is HeVeA.  There is also TtM and LaTeXML.

I still use latex2html, but since perl5 there have been more problems than
I have time to track down and work around.

The biggest problem for me right now is that a comment on its own line is
removed WITH its newline as well, causing loss of any TeX command at end of
previous line due to concatenation with following line.  I think it has to
do with incompatible evolution in perl regarding statements like


I have been able to repair some instances of this problem but not all.  My
(weak) progress is at


and here are too small failing examples in case anyone is interested:

% l2h bug: comment in eqn comes out as ``< tex2html_comment_mark >''
y(n) \eqsp \langle x, \shift_n[\flip(h)] \rangle. % \qquad\hbox{($h$ real)}

% l2h bug: HTML includes ``<15579>>''
% Rev2: Summarize this somewhere

To make the 2nd bug go away, introduce a blank line after the comments.
