Hi Graham,

    Possibly, but I don't see a single page there that looks like HTML
    output from TeX!

Indeed, I'm sure Eitan (Gurari, the author of tex4ht) did not make his
web pages in TeX, and sees no reason to do so.  That was never his main
goal with tex4ht.  But I see no reason it can't be used to do it.

For an example, http://tug.org/texlive/doc/texlive-en/live.html is the
TeX Live document, written as a LaTeX document and processed with

tex4ht is included in TeX Live.  If you want to play with tex4ht, I
recommend installing TeX Live, instead of trying to do it from the
original sources.

There are other tex-to-html converters, but I am a bit doubtful that ny
of the others are flexible enough for the job you are envisioning.

tex4ht is amazingly flexible/configurable, but beware, documentation is
sparse.  Here is an intro article by Eitan:

Whenever I run into trouble with tex4ht, I end up mailing Eitan :(.
