I agree with David: HTML Lite, which comes with FrameMaker 5 for
Windows is awful.

FrameMaker 5.0 comes with a built-in Frame->HTML converter called
"HTML Lite". I've used it and heartily recommend that you use
_anything_ else. It was just awful.

HTML Lite is a piece of junk put out by Quadralay. You have to spend
bucks (about $299) to get the real thing. Don't bother. If you need
a better Frame->HTML converter, try WebWorks instead at $99 with
roughly the same features.

I don't know anything about HoTMETAL Pro. But as a general suggestion,
I can say that you shouldn't bother with any DTP --> HTML converter
that doesn't convert tables. Tables are a real pain to do by hand
in HTML. You'll probably need it to convert equations too but tables
are a must.

Hope this helps.
