I suspect you are viewing with Dviwin, a dvi file produced by TeX4ht ? TeX4ht
produces an intermediate dvi file (because it uses TeX to resolve user-defined 
package-defined TeX commands), but this dvi file is not to be viewed with a dvi 
it is not what one would get by running TeX directly. The real/usable/viewable 
output is
the html file(s) produced by TeX4ht.
