LaTeX is not very practical to write program documentation.  Texinfo is
not so good at math and bibliography.  However, when you need both, for
instance when you write a manual for a program dealing with mathematics,
I find Texinfo with tex4ht or latex2html and now mathjax to be better
compromise than LaTeX as LaTeX is very poor for program documentation.
The html obtained, for instance is much more suitable when going through
Texinfo.
