Currently this is probably true because Octave only looks in one file
when doing a help -i search.  But we can always fix Octave if it does
not do the correct thing.

Please try using a current version of makeinfo to generate the HTML
and then write a .css file that gives the appearance you want.  I
think this has the potential for much better and more reliable results
than any other kind of conversion because makeinfo should be able to
correctly parse all the Texinfo markup.
