And what would become logical in 1998?

I would find it more natural to suggest to write it in texinfo, as a
plethora of filters exist for conversion into (GNU)info (as desired),
html (as you want), AmigaGuide (for the Amiga), dvi (for TeX quality
output) and maybe others.

Do we really need a 7MB Netscape (or probably worse, MS-*) bloat just
to be able to read manpages?
