I just came by this http://tug.org/applications/tex4ht/mn-mswin.html

And I find it a bit extreme to need 20 steps just to set up a software.

Is there any simpler, more reasonable, alternative?

One could write the same in 4 steps: 1. install dependencies (ImageMagick, maybe Java) 2. copy tex4ht files 3. Configure tex4ht to your needs 4. Set the Windows PATH variable correctly and update the TeX database. – Caramdir Sep 19 '11 at 20:20

Pandoc is an easy to install (cross-platform, with windows installer available) markup format to markup format converter that among others supports latex as input format and html as output format.

Pandoc is not a true LaTeX converter. It can only handle a strict subset of LaTeX syntax and concentrates on the mathematics. See johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/README.html#raw-tex for more details. – Loop Space Sep 20 '11 at 6:43
