[OS X TeX] LaTeX2html Basics?

I assume you mean entering these commands into the preamble of the 
to-be-converted document. When I try that, the rendering hangs up 
more (I need to press Enter more to keep it going). In the end I get 
the same thing as before: a lot of question marks where the equations 
are supposed to be. Does it matter exactly where in the preamble the 
commands are entered? Could there be a conflict with any of the other 

As for HeVeA, assuming that I was able to figure out how to achieve a 
"working OCaml installation," at what stage do I invoke "make" and 
"sudo make install"? And what exactly does that mean?

These must seem like elementary questions whose answers to many may 
be obvious. Please have mercy. I know what I want to do. But I'm just 
a beginner.

Many thanks.
