Hi, I'm using an up to date texlive2011 install on Kubuntu 12.04 . I 
recently moved to using biber (from bibtex8) given biblatex-apa now 
requires it. I've noted two issues using htlatex with with biblatex+biber.

First, on the build I get an error on the first citation:


! LaTeX Error: Missing \begin{document} in `'.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

l.24 ...ux at backref{1}{Clark-Flory2010fps}{0}{5}{5}

) (/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/tex/latex/psnfss/ot1ppl.fd)
*geometry* driver: auto-detecting


Second, the resulting html has a span with a some numbers (not sure what 
they represent, but they I have more the more citations I have) in it 
previous to the doctype.


class="cmr-12">14  24</span>


The minimal example, log files, and HTML can be found here:
