Well, the HTML looks like

<a href="79/lily-83620d4b.ly"><p>&lsquo;<tt>accidental-ancient.ly</tt>&rsquo;
</a>    <p>
 <a href="79/lily-83620d4b.ly">
  <img align="middle"
       alt="[image of music]">

so indeed the geometry appears to be absent.  Probably worth an
enhancement request on the Texinfo mailing list.  It would probably slow
down the HTML generation, though.
