I've just installed htlatex  and it works quite well. I've used it many 
times before. One thing you have to be aware of is that if you want 
references within the document to be produced, you have to have .bib and 
other files there already---you have to already have a fully TeX'ed 
version of the document available. I installed it just by following 
directions in the excellent web documentation at the main home page, 

Cheers and best regards,
