The simplest approach would be to create a short PostScript prolog
which redefines certain operators to test for "rectangle-ness," and
then writes the appropriate HTML to a file. You would probably want
to redefine stroke, fill, rectstroke and rectfill.
This will not be completely bullet-proof, but it's simple, and will
probably cover all the cases you need to worry about.
