I've been doing some more checking and the problem may be due to khtml 
in konqueror. When I open it in Firefox, I do not get the 
single-columned text. Firefox is the default html viewer for dolphin but 
khtml is used for konqueror unless webkit is offered, which I don't see 
on my system.

Since it turns out that the problem may not be related to texi2html 
maybe it's best to leave things as they are unless other users 
experience similar problems.

I choose to use konqueror as the default file-manager rather than 
dolphin because I like the ability to view many different file types 
which dolphin does not have.

I'm attaching a single-column1.png to show what the original makefile 
produces and single-column2.png to show what the modified makefile 
produces when I view them in konqueror using khtml.
