Indeed, I (vaguely) remember.

It is quite recent, in fact, the last widely deployed.  But I tested
that indeed, you need to add the command line option --node-files to get
the node files of the for cross manual specification.  So I think this
is the way to go, to have the same file as the recent Texinfo generated.

With --node-files, I think the output of texi2html-1.8x and texinfo 5.0
should be pretty similar.
