I meant maintained by SuSE.
There are open bugreports about it, and it seems SuSE 11.0 will again
contain tex4ht. I'll keep observing that, as I plan to upgrade to SuSE 11.0.
Hopefully, they have fixed some of the bugs. It seems there is now also
openoffice support in tex4ht, so that would be very good.
So, the HTML afficiniados are in luck.
