They are the exact same technology, so one is not actually "better" than the other. Intel Pentium Dual-Cores use the same architecture as the Intel Core 2 Duo, just with a smaller L2 cache size. This makes the Dual-Core slightly slower in intensive applications than a Core 2 Duo at the same clock speed. A Pentium Dual-Core will still outperform a Core 2 Duo of a lower clock rate.

Pentium D's are older Core 2's renamed to promote newer CPU's.

What is better an Intel Pentium III or an Intel Celeron?

Celeron doesn't refer to any particular processor series. Celerons were cost-reduced versions of their Pentium equivalents. The Celeron in question could be based on a Pentium 2, Pentium 3, Pentium 4, Pentium D, or Core 2 Duo. In which case the answers would be "Pentium 3, Usually Pentium 3, Celeron, Celeron, and Celeron", respectively.

Compare Pentium 4 D and Pentium 4 HT?

Pentium D is a dual core processor, while the Pentium 4 HT is a single core that is capable of running two software threads. More simply put, The Pentium D is 2 people each pulling their own wagons, the Pentium 4 HT is one person pulling 2 wagons with lubricated wheels. Over all, the Pentium D is better because it is truly dual core, although the Pentium 4 does a great job of trying.
