[texhax] latex2html

I want to try composing webpages with latex.  I am running MikTeX, a recent 
version, on Windows98.  I found and installed (I think) the latex2html package 
off the web via MikTeX Options.  I now have some .sty files that seem to relate 
to html.  However, I don't find an executable (.exe) file for latex2html, like 
I do for latex.exe, for instance.  I use TextPad as my editor, and I tried to 
install latex2html as a "Tool," but it doesn't work.

I have read something on the web about needing Perl to run latex2html on 
Windows.  I hope that is not the case, since the one and only time I tried to 
download and install Perl, it crashed my machine badly.

Can anyone tell me an easy way to generate html pages from LaTeX documents?
