Follow-up Comment #4, bug #429 (project tex4ht):

You can use a simple wrapper around htlatex if you don't mind the issues I
described in my previous post. This version is for Unix based OSes:

htlatex "$@"
rm $base.dvi
rm $base.idv
rm $base.lg
rm $base.tmp
# following files should be kept IMHO
# the log file can be usefull for error investigation
rm $base.log
# these files are reused between TeX runs, it is not a good idea to delete
rm $base.4tc
rm $base.4ct
rm $base.aux
rm $base.xref

I would say that deleting the dvi, idv, lg and tmp files should be quite safe,
as they are generated every time from the scratch and the subsequent
compilations don't depend on them.
