"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.
