Based on your suggestion this is what I have cooked up.  I am recording
what I see as problems and invite your comments.

1. Copy the attached form to color-theme.el
2. emacs -q, C-x C-f color-theme.el
3. M-x load-theme-buffer-local RET tango-dark RET
4. Look at the attached png image for a screenshot of the image.
5. Place your cursor on `load-theme-buffer-local' and C-u C-x =.  Follow
   the link to `font-lock-function-name-face'.
6. You will see that foreground color is reported as "Blue1" while /in
   fact/ the face is yellowish.
7. Now M-x htmlfontify-buffer.  I am attaching the .html file created
   by this command.  You will see that the buffer is colorized based on
   uncustomized face settings.

I believe the problems in 5-7 are related.  

I think C-u C-x = and whatever the underlying APIs that htmlfontify uses
for retrieving face properties should act on effective value and not
global values.
