Is that Java?? Or C++? Or C#?? Using the C-API?

There are many examples available of how to interface with Notes. Can you start there? There's no such thing as an Export-method of a RichTextItem in Java, the GetItem seems wrong, and more.

Maybe it's easier if you open the database using a browser object, if that is possible?

I assume you have the documentation:
http://www-12.lotus.com/ldd/doc/tools/cplus/3.0/lncpp30.nsf

Did you try the sample IEXPORT program that is included in the toolkit?

The doc also says that there's the possibility to include an exportdll:
      Input, path and name information for export library file for a specific document type.

Here's what the User Guide says about exporting:
"To export rich text to a file type supported by your Notes client, call Export with the name (and location, if necessary) of the output file and cursors marking the beginning and end of the text you want to export."

When you look in the Notes Help database, under File types supported for Import and Export, you can indeed find the HTML type at the bottom. But there it says that export to HTML is not supported.

So, as far as I can see, what you want isn't there. Sorry...

You can however export to RTF, and convert that to HTML using Word, for example.
