"Need" is relative. It's not strictly required, but people seem to like it
(and it seems to have mostly silenced the LaTeX-haters). It is also more
convenient if you want to look something up quickly - just open the URL in
your browser, no need to open up a PDF viewer and find the right page. And
yes, TeX4ht is rather hackish, but the output is nice after a small amount
amount of babysitting. The only thing I don't like is that it puts footnotes
in their own HTML files.
