> So chktex and pdflatex and latex2html cannot all be acting correctly

as far as I can see the only issue is that latex2html needs updating
to match the latest perl.

perl used to warn if you used { in a regular expression instead of \{
but now finally it stops
working, so some { will need changing to \{ (that may already have
happened in the latex2html sources, I don't know)

chktex and pdflatex are working as expected. Using " is an input error
but latex doesn't warn about it, it just silently does the wrong
chktex makes warnings about things that latex doesn't catch, which is
the whole point of the program, and it apparently warns about this.
