Thank you.

Do you think there would be interest in me writing up what
changes we had to make in the transition, along with our texi2html
and texi2any command lines and init files?

You all have been helpful and if it would keep you from answering
more of the same questions, then I am happy to do it.

First thanks for all the help.

I don't know if you recall but it was less than a year ago
and we were using texi2www which predates texi2html.
We have a come a long way and need to push farther. :)
Indeed, I (vaguely) remember.

That's not a old texi2html that more like an ancient texi2html...
What version of texi2html are you using?
address@hidden rtems_texinfo_test]$ texi2html --version
address@hidden rtems_texinfo_test]$ rpm -qf /usr/bin/texi2html

This is what ships with CentOS 6.x or at least is in the standard
EPEL repository.
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.

You encouraged me to move more to the new way of doing things and making
the old texi2html conform as best it can.

I think our Makefiles can now handle both texi2html 1.8x and texi2any. It
uses autoconf to detect the difference and some not so pretty hackery
to do the right thing.
With --node-files, I think the output of texi2html-1.8x and texinfo 5.0
should be pretty similar.
