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.
