I'm not an expert on info myself but I believe that if you splitted
the info files then you would have to install them properly and not
just open then in info mode. You have to put all the parts into the
info directory such as /usr/info or /usr/share/info on Unix.

that why i prefer the --no-split option of makeinfo. it makes testing
texinfo file easier.

I'm not sure of this but this might be caused by an older version of
texi2html. I didn't have this problem.

I'll give your latest version a try.

my version of texinfo is 4.6 (I want to go to 4.7 since it added some
nice things such as table headings.) and texi2html is 1.66

The problem is finding the time!:-( I have full-time job, hacking C
and assembly on embedded systems. The various off-line tools I built
for myself were written in Elisp. But I really like the idea of
stand-alone programs written in Scheme! :-)

I quite happy with it! I'd feel flattered if you included it in the
distribution. I just don't want my email address appear any where in
the distribution please! :-)
