I hesitate to respond to this, having just joined the list, and not
wanting to begin a flame war. I guess I didn't quite realise that
'out of the box' might not always be interpreted in a relative way as
I used it. So yes, hevea is not a Cocoa application, but it does
work well in that I can produce a LaTeX document and with a single
command create pretty reasonable HTML. Also, my suggestion was made
in the context of two other non-GUI apps (latex2html and tex4ht).
Since installing a package like hevea is not much different than
installing a LaTeX package from CTAN, I assumed that people on this
list would not object to the suggestion. In particular, (as another
poster noted) there is an OS X binary download and the 'finicky unix'
stuff is simply two copy commands.
Anyway, sorry if I misled anyone.
