Generating sensible web pages from MMD

Hello MMD Support

** I've also posted this at the Scrivener Support Forum, in case that's more appropriate **

I've been using MMD to happily generate a LaTex PDF with four chapters (to my great satisfaction). I now want to generate a set of web pages to mirror the same content in HTML. I'm starting with Scrivener, compiling to MMD / HTML and wondering what to do next.

I'm mainly wondering about the most efficient way to generate a series of web pages, rather than one single long one. I'm also using Marked and MMD Composer to view the HTML output, because that provides a layer of CSS that sufficiently "pretties" the output.

- Can you point me in the right direction to what might be a sensible workflow? (I think MMD CMS would probably be a step too far for me.)
- Do I need to (use MMD Composer to) manually divide the single HTML output file from Scrivener (or Marked)? Or is there a way to separate the files from the outset?
- I will probably publish the end result either in a section of my WordPress website, or via GitHub Pages.

Any thoughts gratefully appreciated.

    I don't have a good tool for splitting Markdown/MMD files. I seem to recall there being utilities to split long HTML pages, but that was a *long* time ago.
