I found that a large fraction of the conversion chaff is due to carriage returns in captions and table items.  Apparently, texi->dvi and texi->html treat carriage returns differently.  There is still the issue of @math and the path for figure images.  Apparently images for figures have to be in the same directory as the texi file, as they are now.
