Can you place the produced html and dvi files on the web and provide
pointers to the files.

The convert' utility can't be the cause for breaking the display
formula into boxes.

The compilations into pdf are irrelevant to tex4ht.  What matters are
compilations into dvi-->postscript.

With arev.sty commented out?  If so there is some tex4ht related bug
that needs fixing.  With a little input from you it shouldn't take
much to fix it.

With the presence of arev.sty?  The environment of arev.sty introduces
some definitions for the math environment and they may confuse tex4ht.
Such definition very likely are also fixable.  Do you get any problem
with the following file?

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{arev}
\begin{document}
First $a$

$b$
\end{document}

My current suspicion the problem has nothing to do with the fonts in
use.
