Just use cd.  You can use cd in a script just like you would
at the command line.

cd /what/ever/the/source/directory/is
tar cvf ../htmlstuff.tar /cc.html
mkdir -p /where/ever/you/want/it 
cd /where/ever/you/want/it
tar xvf /what/ever/the/source/directory/htmlstuff.tar

This would eliminate the directory tree being recreated 
where you unroll the tar presuming that fantasy path I first cd to
is, in your example, /var/web/data/verion

If you want to preserve that directory path in the new place you do

cd /
tar cvf /htmlstuff.tar /what/ever/the/source/directory/is/cc.html
mkdir -p /where/ever/you/want/it
cd /where/ever/you/want/it
tar xvf /htmlstuff.tar

You can put that in a loop in your script if it can pick up 
the file names and directory paths to plug in the commands.
