Cute. Nice to see someone actually using output filters for something.

BTW, you say:

  With this setting, htmlatex filters all outgoing html that end in .htmlx.  I'd
  like to have it handle .html files, but right now, it chokes on plain HTML
  without any equations.  More mod_python study is needed.

In what way does it choke on HTML with no LaTeX elements? Is this really
a mod_python issue as your line about more mod_python study being
required seems to suggest?
