Texi2html 1.64

Texi2html is a Perl script that converts Texinfo to HTML.
Texi2html is a Perl script that converts Texinfo to HTML. It was originally developed by Lionel Cons and later maintained by Karl Berry.

In contrast to the HTML produced by makeinfo --html (the makeinfo program is part of the Texinfo distribution), the HTML output of texi2html is highly configurable. Among others, with texi2html you can customize your entire page layout (like headers, footers, style sheets, etc), split documents at various levels and use latex2html to convert @tex sections.

You can download the latest version (1.64, 03 July 2000) from Distrib/texi2html-1.64.tar.gz. See the Distrib/NEWS file for the latest changes.

For older versions of texi2html, visit the Distrib directory.
