There's been talk of an HTML export plugin, but there are a variety of
issues that make it harder than you'd think (and less useful). Scribus
is designed for exact positioning and sizing of elements. HTML on the
other hand has to be viewable on many different sizes of screens with
different browsers, different font sizes, etc, so it tends to be less
exact about where everything goes.
It's possible to make HTML that is always locked to exact positions and
sizes, but it's generally a bad idea as people with very high or low
detail displays and people with limited vision find it very hard to handle.
Additionally, Scribus's text features cannot be reproduced in HTML.
There's no way to control kerning in HTML, and the user-agent expects to
do its own justification & text flow. Working around these issues would
probably involve writing downright awful HTML that absolutely positions
every character individually - and explodes into an unreadable mess when
viewed with non-default font sizes.
If you want to publish Scribus-designed content, I'd recommend putting
up a PDF. If you're just looking for a web page editor I don't think
Scribus is what you are looking for.
