Sure, check out the attached mini test texi. The call goes like this:
$ texi2html -frames -split node test.texi

test_frame.html will then reference the file test.html but test.html won't
be created at all.

Testing new versions is not that easy for me because I'm on cygwin and
I'm not sure if I can simply drop new versions into my cygwin installation.

Why is the new version bumped to 5.0 by the way? Is it a complete
rewrite or something?

Thanks, works like a charm. Another question:

Is it possible to get rid of the "Section" links in the Index? In my document,
index entries and section entries use identical names. Thus, the index looks
kind of redundant because it goes like this:

Index Entry              Section
An index entry          5.7 An index entry
Another index entry   5.3 Another index entry
Last index entry        10.9 Last index entry

It would be totally sufficient for my purposes if there was only the left column
(Index Entry) in the Index. The section entries could be left out altogether.
