Dear bmassing at cs.trinity.edu!

True TeX syntax is too complicated to be fully implemented 
in convertors like latex2html. Only the most sensitive features 
can be supported.

In order to recommend some approach the simple usage examples 
(TeX source fragment with desirable text/HTML results) are

Would You like to provide simple examples of what You'd like to get?  

Yours, Sergej
