Anything you developed in this area would be of interest to me, and I  
would definitely use it, but I'm pretty sure I could also get by with  
just PDF slide shows.

I started trying to learn tex4ht a few months ago, and it's been a  
fascinating experience...  At one stage, a website in (gulp!) Catalan  
gave me just the information I needed---even though I could only read  
it at a very generic-Romance-language level.  And I certainly never  
realized how complicated the "behind the scenes" stuff in LaTeX lists  

A propos lists... is there a way of ending a sublist without also  
ending the item it occurs in?

It's not urgent---I'm just curious.
