There is a version of Perl available for the Macintosh called MacPerl.  So 
parts of the Unix-based converter will easily port to the Macintosh.  However,
the Unix-based converter makes system calls to several Unix programs for
converting graphics--ppmtogif and mpeg_encode.  If you comment out these system
calls, you might be able to run math2html (the program formerly known as
mma2html) using MacPerl to convert all of the text to HTML.  I guess that you
would also have to change all of the "/"s to ":"s in the path names for files 
to conform to the Macintosh file system convention.

Math2html is available at ftp://ftp.ma.iup.edu/pub/math2html and on MathSource.
MacPerl is available at various places including 
ftp://ftp.cis.ufl.edu/pub/perl/CPAN/ports/mac/.

If anyone does decide to port math2html to the Macintosh, let me know.  I might
be able to give some assistance.
