What is your problem with info? It is just a man page with references,
the format is very similar to all that html-Documentation out there,
it is easy to use (Enter to follow a link, u (Up) to go back q to quit)

I suppose converting it to man is rather stupid, because you would lose the
references, converting it to html is probably a better solution (And IIRC 
there are tools for that).

Well all that is just IMHO.
