It is possible to convert automatically from Texinfo to HTML.

The current output may not be so good, but that could be corrected.
We are currently using texi2html to convert Octave's documentation to
HTML, but I think we should consider switching to makeinfo now. Back
in the day, makeinfo did not do a very good job of generating HTML
output, but that seems to be fixed, and the output can be customized
using a CSS file. So it should be relatively simple to improve the
appearance of the generated files.
