Sure.  I've uploaded added the secondary manuals to manual/html_mono
and manual/html_node.

In order to get the links to work properly without lots of symlink
hacking, I had to move the existing manual files around so that they
are where "makeinfo --html" expects.  Thus, the "entirely on one
webpage" version of the emacs manual is now in
manual/html_mono/emacs.html instead of manual/emacs.html, the index
page for the Emacs manual has been moved from manual/index.html to
manual/emacs.html, and the elisp manual has also been merged into the
manual/ tree.

I have tried to update the symlinks by editing the .symlink files, but
this does not seem to have any effect.  Is there anything else I need
to do to make them take effect?  For instance, we need to make the
files in the elisp-manual tree point to the new locations in manual.
Also, we should make a new page in manual/index.html that points to
the separate manuals on the webpage (Emacs manual, elisp manual,
autotype, gnus, etc etc.)
