Yes, quite true on both counts.

Yes, thanks, please do that.

That sounds like a bug in makeinfo.

Possibly, yes.  I'm not an expert in this area, though.

I briefly scanned the output of makeinfo for other HTML gotchas and
spotted many places where the output doesn't conform to the latest
recommendation for HTML, which I assume would be XHTML 1.0 Strict.
However, I guess this area is controversial, so I'm not sure it's
worth sending in bug reports about it.
