First, I hope I'm doing this right. I've never used email lists, but  
rather newsgroups or forums.

Second, I'm coming from the forum on TexShop with an unresolved  
question on creating HTML from a Tex file.

I was kindly told to: create a htlatex.engine file, with the commands:

htlatex "$1"

and to put it into the ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/ folder.

Then, in TexShop, I can choose to typeset in htlatex.

When I do so, the log file is generated in the console as usual, but  
at the end, I get many messages of the type:

System call: convert -trim +repage -density 110x110 -transparent  
'#FFFFFF' zzAdvMacro_PS_6TEST.ps AdvMacro_PS_6TEST25x.png
--- Warning --- System return: 32512

Then, when I click to open the file.html from my finder, all the text  
shows up fine, but there are question marks for all the equations...  
I guess the equations are supposed to be transfered into .png images,  
but the error message tells me the images are not generated? Any idea  
of what couldbe going wrong?

Also, as a follow-up question (although a good answer to the above  
would be wonderful in itself!), is there a way to create separate  
HTML pages (with automatic links from one to the other) from each  
section of the Latex file, for instance, as is the case when using  

I've been finding a lot of references on Latex2html, but is this the  
same as htlatex? Or what is the difference?

Thanks so much for your help and for your patience with a beginner
