Update: Okay, things look a little brighter now, since it's not a problem with 
@verbatim inside something (which is documented to be not supported), but 
rather with @quotation, which automatically sets the indentation to 5 spaces, 
although in HTML the indentation is already done by <blockquote>. Since 
apparently, @quotation is broken, I suppose that's a real bug in makeinfo. In 
particular, because their code talks a lot about @quotation possibly 
containing @example - which is of course also broken:

This should be indented twice: by <blockquote> and only once with spaced(from 
example), but is actually three times (quotation also adds another level of 
additional whitespace indentation, although its indentation is already done 
by <blockquote>)!!!
@end example
@end quotation

I will send a bug report (and a patch, which seems to work here with my simple 
tests) to the texinfo list.
