Ralf,

Some users devised scripts along the following lines.

latex ...
bibtex...    call, if needed
makeindex... call, if needed
latex ...    repeat until the dvi file doesn't change
tex4ht ...
t4ht ...

I never tried those scripts, but I believe I have one somewhere in the
emails I got.  I'll try to find it forward the code to you (in about
3--4 weeks).
