May I chime in?

Do I get it right: you are suggesting to remove prompts from .texi and put them 
back in HTML output only — leaving other formats with not prompts?

And that is only to make them unselectable?  I do not quite understand, why 
this is needed at all (are there multiline examples in the manual, that 
expected to be blindly copypasted to terminal?), but in any case no hacks like 
‘::before’ are required — ‘user-select: none’ is supported by all modern 
webengines (yet sometimes with prefix):

            code .PS1 {
                -webkit-user-select: none;
                -moz-user-select: none; /* Not required since F***fox 69. */
                user-select: none;
          <pre><code><span class="PS1">$ </span>wget …/
        <span class="PS1">$ </span>su -
        <span class="PS1"># </span>bash ./
