The following command on your specimen document (saved as deyan.tex)

  htlatex deyan.tex "html,xhtml"

?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=us-ascii" />
  <meta name="generator" content="TeX4ht (http://www.tug.org/tex4ht/)" />
  <meta name="originator" content="TeX4ht (http://www.tug.org/tex4ht/)" />
  <!-- html,xhtml -->
  <meta name="src" content="deyan.tex" />
  <meta name="date" content="2010-11-14 11:43:00" />
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="deyan.css" />

  <!--l. 8-->

  <div class="array">
    <table id="TBL-1" class="array" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
      <colgroup id="TBL-1-1g">
        <col id="TBL-1-1" />

      <tr style="vertical-align:baseline;">
        <td style="white-space:nowrap; text-align:center;">
          <div class="td11">
            <span class="cmmi-10">test</span>

Hope this helps.
