I hesitate to respond to this, having just joined the list, and not 
wanting to begin a flame war.  I guess I didn't quite realise that 
'out of the box' might not always be interpreted in a relative way as 
I used it.  So yes, hevea is not a Cocoa application, but it does 
work well in that I can produce a LaTeX document and with a single 
command create pretty reasonable HTML.  Also, my suggestion was made 
in the context of two other non-GUI apps (latex2html and tex4ht).

Since installing a package like hevea is not much different than 
installing a LaTeX package from CTAN, I assumed that people on this 
list would not object to the suggestion. In particular, (as another 
poster noted) there is an OS X binary download and the 'finicky unix' 
stuff is simply two copy commands.

Anyway, sorry if I misled anyone.
