 deceptive solution and gave it a miss entirely.

 How wrong I was, how deceptively brilliant this is! I was expecting I
 would have to at least input child documents, but it worked its magic
 on the master document itself. Believe me, nothing else ever worked,
 and this is a complex document with LaTeX hacks here and there.

 Sure, there were some issues, like not recognising some (or all) LaTeX
 commands, external inset, and ignoring some BibTeX entries, but I now
 have a usable single-file HTML verbatim copy of the main contents,
 complete with (cross-)references and images.

 The software had been lying dormant as a package in my (GNU/Linux)
 distribution's unofficial buildscripts repository [1] with no love at
 all, but I'll be promoting it directly to a supported binary
 repository as soon as I get some time -- no-one should miss this.

Glad you are doing this. I will add you to the list of maintainers if you
want, and send you any announcements directly.

Thanks,

 Hi all,

 Version 1.2.4 of eLyXer, the LyX - HTML converter, has just been released

 more commands and a fix for having both hover and end footnotes. See the
 full changelog at:
   http://alexfernandez.github.com/elyxer/changelog.html

Ubuntu binaries for 1.2.5 are available at the PPA:

Liviu

 You can download it as a zip file:

 or as a tar.gz:
   http://alexfernandez.github.com/elyxer/dist/elyxer-1.2.4.tar.gz
 It is also present in the PyPI:
   https://pypi.python.org/pypi/eLyXer/1.2.4

 The project's homepage has changed, it now resides at:
   http://alexfernandez.github.com/elyxer/
 The code repo has also changed to github:
   https://github.com/alexfernandez/elyxer
 along with the preferred form of hacking on it, which is now to fork it and
 submit a pull request. This will hopefully make contributions much more
 agile; in this version we feature one such contribution by José Ramón
 Álvarez Sánchez (thanks a lot!).

 Enjoy!

 Alex.
