If the interest is to follow the model of with regard
to math representation, then there is no point to start from scratch
with tex4ht.  Instead one might just use their tools.  The site uses bitmaps for math, and the developers of that
site for reasons I'm not familiar with decided to go with LaTeX2HTML.

My understanding was that some axiom people preferred to use jsmath
instead of mathml or bitmaps, and tex4ht was brought into
consideration to try doing the job.  I believe tex4ht is capable to
provide good outcome.  I successfully roughly tested the approach the
past few days with tex4ht on the testmath.tex file of the amsmath
society for non-normalized latex output.  The outcome can be viewed at

by inspecting the html source of the file (or employing a text base
editor that shows CDATA sections).  For jsmath the high level math
configurations in use should be replaced with low level tex
configurations that abide to the capabilities of jsmath.  I currently
can't finish this last step because I don't know how to enable jsmath.
