But I wasn't responding to the main discussion (of whether to replace Info). I 
just responded to the side discussion (for which you created a new subject 
line) of the names/syntax used for the UI for Info.

But in my original message, I proposed a solution that provides exactly what 
you're asking for (a single name that works in both web browsers and Info 
browsers), by using redirects to the HTML or Info page (each of which has its 
own name). I explained how it would work, and I think it covers all the issues 
raised in this subthread about how these names should work.
