Deprecated in favor of what alternatives?

The Info format has several valuable features that ``modern'' formats
such as HTML lacks: e.g., indices with the associated index-search
features.  Without these features, using a manual as a reference (as
opposed to a book or tutorial you read for the first time) is a
nuisance, especially if the manual is large and complex, like the
Emacs manuals.
