assuming you've 2 NICs and 2 IPs from your 2 ISPs :
ISP1 => $IP1, $NIC1
ISP2 => $IP2, $NIC2

let's say that your lan is

Then you can use :
iptables -t nat -I POSTROUTING -s -d ! -p tcp --dport 80 -j SNAT --to-source $IP1
iptables -t nat -I POSTROUTING -s -d ! -j SNAT --to-source $IP2
This is not exactly what you asked :
Web trafic will be tranlsated to $IP1, so it will go out through the ISP1's interface
All other trafic will be tranlsated to $IP2, so it will go out through the ISP2's interface

Of course you can use filters like -p tcp --dport 80 in the second POSTROUTING rule, but if you have many rules to apply, then you should create a new chain so as to make your script more clear (and maybe more powerfull, but I'm not sure of this).
