Hi Søren.

The common solution for makeinfo limitation are the options ifinfo, ifhtml and

iftex in a texinfo file. For example, if there is an equation then it will

put in a file tree times: one within of a ifinfo, one within of a ifhtml and

one within of a iftex each in a respective (and different) format.
