It's clear in the HTML code, it's only a problem of setting the <ul>
class or style attribute properly to display bullets or something else.

After quickly looking at texi2html docs, it should be possible to get
any desired output by redefining the output function, e.g.
"Music Glossary, double sharp", which is much prettier than
"(music-glossary)double sharp".  If we keep "See also" sections as they
are, i.e. with references grouped by external manual name, we should
even have two different external ref commands for HTML ouptut, one with
the name of the manual, and one without it.

That's ceratinly doable, but AFAIK this involves a bit of Javascript.
This would be also very cool if the node currently displayed was
highlighted in the TOC.

I'm sorry I can't help with switching to texi2html right now, I'll only
have little time for this in April.
