It seems there is some pdflatex code executed which shouldn't when  
tex4ht. So you use some package which only works with pdflatex. You  
make this conditional......

Piet, and all,
after running the .tex file including

\ifpdf \usepackage{pdfsync} \fi

which you indicated to me off-list, the conversion on Terminal with

htlatex filename "html,3"

(and later also with SimpleTeX4ht) went flawlessly. Turning the html  
file into a .doc file equivalent contentswise to the TeX- 
produced .pdf file was still quite cumbersome though, and I wonder if  
some improvement could be made to htlatex in view of the goal to  
convert the .tex file via html ultimately into a .doc file (latex2rtf  
does not recognise many packages).

Re-introduction of the graphs (.pdf files) and rebuilding the table  
of contents was not so much a problem, most time was consumed for re- 
inserting the footnotes for which htlatex produced as many html files  
(one has to remove the links from footnotereferences AND  
footnotetext, and create new footnotes and paste the text - WORD  
macros help there to a certain extent).

Is this htlatex programme still being maintained ? Would it be  
possible to convert the footnotes in a way so that the file could be  
more easily reconstructed ? Also, would it be possible to carry bold  
font and italics over to the html (or .doc) output in some way ?

A Word file BTW, profits enormously from the conversion from .tex and  
I have left it alone as far as I could (except font type and size).
Thanks for your advice
