Yes, there are at least two possibilities:

1. design and implement a replacement for Info that is based
   on (X)HTML

2. add ways for standard Web browsers to take advantage of
   features that Info has, beyond clicking links: index
   search and other cross-page searches, keyboard access
   to follow links (e.g. HTML `accesskey' attribute)

If some thought is given to #2 when thinking about #1, then #1 can perhaps
benefit from some of the same implementation.
