Indeed, texi2html-1.82 seems to be broken in that respect.

I checked that texinfo/tp works well.

My experience with cygwin is that packages following
the GNU standards may be installed quite easily.

You should be able to download the source and do

./configure && make && make install

If you want to try the cvs version, you have to have
automake/autoconf/gettext installed, and you could
do something along

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/texinfo co texinfo
cd texinfo
./configure && make && make check && make install

No, but the idea was to synchronize version with texinfo before
merging.  In the end texi2html is in texinfo, but the next release
will be based on a new implementation, the Parser.

That would require that you redefine the function reference that
does the indes entry formatting.  For menu entry there is something
along what you ask for, but not for index entries, since your
case should be pretty rare.
