+<h3 class="section">10.3 Manuals on Web Pages</h3>
+
+<p>The web pages for the package should include its manuals, in HTML,
+DVI, Info, PostScript, PDF, plain ASCII, and Texinfo format (source). 
+All of these can be generated automatically from the Texinfo source
+using Makeinfo and other programs.
+
+   <p>When there is only one manual, put it in a subdirectory called
+<samp><span class="file">manual</span></samp>; the file <samp><span 
class="file">manual/index.html</span></samp> should have a link to
+the manual in each of its forms.
+
+   <p>If the package has more than one manual, put each one in a
+subdirectory of <samp><span class="file">manual</span></samp>, set up 
<samp><span class="file">index.html</span></samp> in each
+subdirectory to link to that manual in all its forms, and make
+<samp><span class="file">manual/index.html</span></samp> link to each manual 
through its subdirectory.
+
+   <p>See the section below for details on a script to make the job of
+creating all these different formats and index pages easier.
+
+   <p>We would like to include links to all GNU manuals on the page
+<a href="http://www.gnu.org/manual";>http://www.gnu.org/manual</a>, so if yours 
isn't listed, please send
+mail to <code>address@hidden</code> telling them the name of your
+package and asking them to edit <a 
href="http://www.gnu.org/manual";>http://www.gnu.org/manual</a>, and
+they will do so based on the contents of your <samp><span 
class="file">manual</span></samp> directory.
