Convert LedgerSMB Manual to HTML?

Perhaps use something like latex2html to create an html version of the LedgerSMB  manual for inclusion in the Debian package?  As noted in a message to me in the LedgerSMB Development mailing list:

I run pdflatex against the LedgerSMB-manual.tex a few times when I
update the source. Yeah, that's the source.

The source file is there, so could add generating an html version of the manual when the package is built.
