There's also one other converter, namely, Hyperlatex [ 
http://hyperlatex.sourceforge.net/ ], written in Lisp.

It is mentioned in this page 
http://small.dropbear.id.au/docs/latexhtml.html and seems to be actively 
maintained --the README file in the CVS says the latest version, v2.9, 
is dated November 2006.

BTW, I know nothing about Lisp or Latex; but I did some googling to help 
if I can.
