You installed it in the wrong place. If anything it should go into  
the texmf.local branch, not texmf.gwtex since that will get  
overwritten at the next update. You should also install it into ..../ 
texmf.local/tex/latex/ or a sub-directory in that directory. It may  
even be best if you put it into your personal tree at ~/Library/texmf/ 
tex/latex/ since that requires no `sudo texhash`. Finally, it most  
definitely should work if it's in the same directory as the original  

You've got other problems. I'm not sure what the requirements of the  
html package are but if it generates raw postscript you must use the  
tex+ghostscript processing. Is the purpose of the rawhtml environment  
to pretty-print the raw html code? What kind of error messages do you  
get when the html.sty file is in the same directory as the main file?

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
