I believe you're mistaken.  It uses info2html - i.e. it
starts with info files.

I'm suggesting "texinfo2html" - which might be just
  makeinfo --html

That said, not everything is
reflowed, some stuff is put into preformatted blocks. Try firing up e.g.
info:pinfo in Konqueror to see how it looks like.

I don't have pinfo installed and yum is hosed (on my laptop).
But I tried info:tar.  It does *not* reflow.  Nor does
it use any font except a mono-space font.  And links
cannot go a specific location in a page, just a page as a whole.
