Since there is already HTML conversion in our DITA functionality it would probably be best (though dangerous) to extend the existing code using your own logic. That way there is a greater chance that your code will work. Of course this would be unsupported since this part of the system is considered closed.

Note that the current code is quite messy. The initial design and logic was migrated from another project and then because end users should never see it it was never “made nice”. So, there are things in there that do nothing and probably some questionable logic as well. Ultimately I'd like to see it rewritten so that it is possible for people like yourself to inject additional logic, but since it is “good enough” that might be a hard sell.
