I also confess to only using groff (and a tiny bit of texinfo), so I
too have a vested interest in making groff produce reasonable html
:-).  I also confess to really liking groff.  I have many lecture
notes which need to be put on the web and a couple of papers etc. Many
of my documents can be found on: most of
which contain figures produced via xfig -> pic and also a few
equations.  All the pictures and tables I've used come out fine as
images, the equations are also ok ish, but then I don't use eqn/pic
macros. Not that I'm complacent about the result - it can be improved
and there are real limitations with -Thtml.

sure yes, fire away :-). I'm working on the -Thtml2 which is conceptually
cleaner, but it is not yet producing output as good as -Thtml, however it
should make far less mistakes when finished. You're welcome to join the
html2 development team if you wish - double the numbers :-)
