What TeX distribution are you using? If it is TeX Live or gwTeX, then  
TeX4ht should be already installed in the distribution.

The latest version of TeXShop has an "engine" file for \ this program.  
It is in


If you don't find it there, but have TeXShop 2.14, then move the  
entire folder ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines to your desktop. The next time  
TeXShop starts, it will create the default folder, which will include  
a TeX4ht folder and htlatex.engine. To use it, move htlatex.engine  
from the inactive folder to  ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines.

To use this program, enter standard latex source in the Source Window.  
In the pulldown menu next to the Typeset button, select htlatex. When  
you push the Typeset button, your latex source will be typeset and  
then converted to an html file, and this html file will open in Safari.

You can make this happen automatically (without selecting htlatex) by  

	%!TEX TS-program = htlatex

near the top of your source file.
