A large part of the problem is that there's a huge mismatch between  
the capabilities/working assumptions of (La)TeX+dvi/pdf and the  
capabilities/working assumptions of HTML+browser. As a result, there  
is (IMO) no such thing as a useful (let alone user friendly) LaTeX to  
HTML converter. (And I reiterate: this is just my opinion.) So trying  
to automagically convert from LaTeX source to HTML+browser display is  
not something I ever try to do.

You haven't really said what you're trying to accomplish. Maybe if you  
gave us some idea of what you're trying to do, someone could suggest  
some alternatives.
