The existing HTML info is just HTML. It's nothing like the Info viewer
in Emacs.

You have to click on everything, there's no ability to look anything up
in an index, or search for anything.

My demo doesn't do much of this either. But you can see how it could.

I might implement things like looking up in an index, because it won't take 
much time.
