Hi Søren.
The common solution for makeinfo limitation are the options ifinfo, ifhtml and 
iftex in a texinfo file. For example, if there is an equation then it will 
put in a file tree times: one within of a ifinfo, one within of a ifhtml and 
one within of a iftex each in a respective (and different) format.
