Solved, sort of...
Well I can now call elyxer from Lyx.
Here is the black magic that allowed this (I do not understand at all why it
was not working before and why it works now ;-)  ):

I have tried several reconfigures+quits without any success.
Then I have decided to duplicate your configuration. I have moved
in Program Files/elyxer and changed the path in Lyx in conformity with this.
Then reconfigure and restart.

First trial Lyx has tried to run elyxer (instead of htlatex) and this was
already a success but it could not find elyxer since I have moved it from
the scripts folder. I have copied it back to this folder (without changing
my path string) and bingo! I have a beatiful HTML page.

Elyxer's result is really very nice out of the box. Thank you very much Alex
for this tool.

My preferences file now reads:

\path_prefix "C:/Program Files/LyX16/bin;C:/Program
Files/LyX16/ghostscript/bin;C:/Program Files/LyX16/imagemagick;C:/Program


\converter "lyx" "html" "python $$s/scripts/ $$i $$o" ""

I am happy that it works now but I would be happy to understand why ;-)

Thanks to all (to Olivier and Alex in particular) for your help.

Best regards,
