FWIW, I never use the HTML version.  I always use info inside emacs (not
the standalone version).  If I want to read end-to-end, I use PDF, which
has links without the annoying choppiness of a multi-page HTML document.

If you use emacs as your primary development environment, info is nicely

One of the advantages of Texinfo is that it provides HTML, PDF and info,
for different customers.
