hello Dan, 

you can get the latex source from the cvs repository, please feel free to grap 
it. However due to the Latex commands it will be cumbersome to read. 
The actual articles can be found in Bivand.tex, Bowman_srtm.tex etc.
I can send you the tex files (without images), they would be around 200 Kb. 

I would be very happy if you give latextohtml (as Hamish proposed) or 
hyperlatex a try. I tried it but had no luck with an appropriate html output
