Thanks, I'll look into one of those next time I find myself consulting 'info'

Optimal would be a CGI or PHP based program that would dynamically translate 'info' into HTML. Any such product like that out there?

texinfo in HTML is trivial

Er, makeinfo --html?

(It's good enough for GNU's on-line manual pages...)

Admittedly, you can't search multi-node HTML documents without external tools (which makes me wonder why anyone bothers with it as a primary documentation format.)

Thanks: me too

info2www is a CGI program that does exactly that. Pretty reasonable it is too...

If you use Konqueror you can get to info pages with a URL like info:/gzip.
