In the HTML customization, there are provisions for such "directions",
which are called 'Back', 'Forward', 'NodeBack', and 'NodeForward'.
These directions are set in Texinfo/Structuring.pm.

There is an example of html output style which is meant to mimic a book
and it uses those directions.  It is in tp/init/book.pm.

If I recall well, in the last versions of texi2html, the 'Forward' and
maybe 'Back' directions were in the headers, as '>' (and '<' for 'Back').
