What I want to do is to refer an HTML or PDF document from an Info document. So
I want the info browser to launch the web browser for it to open a
« file: »  protocol document.

Here is the Texinfo source which I would like to use:

--8<----8<----8<----8<----8<-- begin -->8---->8---->8---->8---->8----
\input texinfo   @c -*-texinfo-*-
@c %**start of header
@setfilename svnbook.info
@settitle Manuel Subversion 1.8
@c %**end of header

@dircategory Archiving
* SVN book: (svnbook). Gestion de versions avec Subversion
@end direntry

@node Top
@top SVN Book



@c Lo
cal Variables:
@c compile-command: "makeinfo svnbook.texi && copy svnbook.info 
@c End:
--8<----8<----8<----8<----8<--  end  -->8---->8---->8---->8---->8----

No, Texinfo cross-references work in any format supported by Texinfo.
If your link should only appear in the HTML version, you could use the
@address@hidden ifhtml conditional, and similarly with links that should
only appear in PDF (i.e. printed version) of the manual.  There's also
@ifnotinfo etc.

So once again I don't think I understand the problem.  Could you
perhaps elaborate, or show an actual example?
