I stand by my "2-5 hours of editing texi", but I forgot to add

In the case of that page... just look at Denemo and the current

- Denemo shows you how the "top boxes" work.  Don't use any other
  formatting; just copy what's there, and change the text and
  links to images accordingly.
- the current Frescobaldi shows how the "bottom list" works... or
  at least, how I imagine it would work the best.  Make a note of
  how that format works (or maybe duplicate it once or twice),
  then make Frescobaldi into a thing like the current Denemo.  And
  move it higher on the page.

The idea behind the website is that it's just like the other docs;
once somebody is accustomed to working on the lilypond docs, they
can easily work on the html+pdf+info that is "general lilypond
information".  Besides, texinfo is easier than html.

Really, seriously.  Don't look at any texinfo tutorials or
manuals... I don't even recommend looking at the extensive
texinfo-related stuff in the Contributor Guide.  Just follow the
examples already in the file.
