The API I ported to is indeed the finished API from the development
version.  Previously, the API was not finished nor documented.  I do
not remember well how it was possible to do things like I did in the
file I sent, it is probably possible, but it is much less practical,
because of the lack of documentation (even for me...).  I would suggest
using the development version if you use the HTML customization allowed
by init files.  If you really can't, I could try to do something, but I
would suggest keeping the existing init files and not doing any change,
waiting for 6.9.

I just got people to agree to use 6.8, so forcing people to use the development version probably won't be received well. :-)  I do have a workaround now for what I want, which is to grep the html file for the titles.  It's just nice to have texinfo take care of these for me. 

And for a bit of history, I think texinfo used to produce maxima_nnn.html until some version changed that to use more obvious file names.  That broke how maxima handled html files.  (I now don't remember exactly how.)

Should become, with the finished API

set_from_init_file('EXTRA_HEAD', '<link rel="icon" href=""> <script src="" href="" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">

That's nice!  I'm really looking forward to 6.9.  I've been following along a bit on the bugs list, and it looks pretty good.
