No, it wouldn't. I propose the following: 

What you see in the form is the original pamphlet file.

Pressing "Save" (depending on the language, of course) invokes a modified
"document" command from the axiom distribution, which does not produce the spad
file and instead of invoking "latex", it invokes "latex2html".

The produced html is displayed, if there were no errors, otherwise you should
be thrown back to the edit form, and get the error messages displayed.

Of course, usually you would grab the pamphlet as a whole, modify it on your
local computer and than paste it back. Even better would be the possibility to
upload a complete pamphlet file.

Bill, you said you are working on this. Did you encounter problems? If you
manage to set it up today, I'd spend part of the weekend working on mathaction!
