dont' have answer to your question specifically...  but, there are at
least 2 robust packages that do what you want already.

I use htmlize.el by Hrvoje Niksic.

For a tutorial, pls see:

• Elisp: Syntax Coloring Source Code In HTML

Also, at the bottom of the above page, you'll see that google has
released a js code that syntax color source code as presented in html
with the pre tag, without needing span markup, and does it in real
time. It is fast, small, and works for many langs.
