makeinfo will include segments of Texinfo source between
@end ifhtml in the HTML output (but not
any of the other conditionals, by default). Source between
@end html is passed without change to the
output (i.e., suppressing the normal escaping of input ‘<’,
‘>’ and ‘&’ characters which have special significance in
HTML). See Conditional Commands.
By default, a navigation bar is inserted at the start of each node,
analogous to Info output. If the ‘--no-headers’ option is used,
the navigation bar is only inserted at the beginning of split files.
<link> elements in split output can support Info-like
navigation with browsers like Lynx and Emacs W3 which implement
this HTML 1.0 feature.
In HTML, when the footnote style is ‘end’, or if the output is not split, footnotes are put at the end of the output. If set to ‘separate’, and the output is split, they are placed in a separate file. See Footnote Styles.
The HTML generated is standard HTML 4. It also tries to be as
compatible as possible with earlier standards (e.g., HTML 2.0,
RFC-1866). Some minor exceptions: 1) HTML 3.2 tables are
generated for the
@multitable command (see Multi-column Tables), but they should degrade reasonably in browsers without table
support; 2) The HTML 4 ‘lang’ attribute on the
‘<html>’ attribute is used; 3) Entities that are not in the
HTML 3.2 standard are also used. 4) CSS is used
(see HTML CSS). 5) A few HTML 4 elements are used
Using ‘--init-file=html32.pm’ produces strict HTML 3.2 output (see Invoking texi2any).
