I tried the HeVeA package (installation worked without problems, btw.); 
it seems to work very well with LaTeX files containing only text, but 
since I usually have at least some math in my documents, I prefer the 
way TeX4ht handles that (creating .png files for math expressions). 
HeVeA uses the symbol font for mathematical expressions, and I wasn't 
able to get this to work in Safari (though I didn't try too hard, I 
must admit, since to present documents containing a lot of math in the 
internet PDF is much better, so this might not be a big issue).
A good thing about HeVeA is the way it breaks a large document into 
sections, and the possibility to include your own HTML headers. I don't 
know if this is so easy in TeX4ht.
