In answer to 1) The following line in the terminal produded an html  
document on the desktop.

/usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/tex4ht /Users/trike/ 

as well as the line calling the intel chip

/usr/local/teTeX/bin/i386-apple-darwin-current/tex4ht /Users/trike/ 

In answer to 2) I don't see any binaries named tex in /usr/local/bin
Is there supposed to be a symbolic link there?

So it is just a matter of setting the path in the terminal, so it  
will find teTeX before it searches bin. I see that Peter Dyballa has  
written a detailed step by step process, but I don't know if I am up  
to it. Thanks for the help.
