It waits for stdin input, use

  cat file.html | onsgmls ...

or something similar.

Then it is likely that it did not read onsgmls' output properly. On
Win32 / Perl 5.8.2 I had to add

  binmode($spout, ':crlf');


  # Rewind temporary filehandles.
  seek $_, 0, 0 for $spout, $sperr;

Not sure whether this will work for you aswell.
