This looks like the tool we use to convert the Texinfo documentation (texi2html 
1.82) does not support the syntax used to start numbering at 0. It’s a known 
issue that we’re using an ancient version of an ancient tool, but for various 
reasons, migrating to the new tool is not easy.

Right. That one could be fixed with a trivial edit. Would you be willing to 
submit a fix yourself? All you need to know is explained at


Someone else can do this too, but in case you are generally interested in 
contributing to LilyPond, fixing a typo is a great way to learn how the 
contributing process works.
