Home Page - telling about GAP All Chapter titles, plus pointer to listing of all nodes and index Chapter 1 (Aboutgap) first section ... Chapter 2 first section ... ... Index
Is this what your question meant?

I'm not surprised that it doesn't get all these features correct. I
was very impressed with the organization of the manual that allowed
almost 1000 pages to become a "nearly correct" info document. I
attempted a minimal conversion - I know there are problems with
references, fonts, index entries, |'s (and I spend more time with |
than with everything else combined). I think that for someone who
knows perl, these are not too hard to do.
However, the direct creation of the HTML document - by the creator -
is clearly the best way to proceed. I only hope that my effort proves
useful in the short run. Anyway, I enjoyed learning perl.
Once again, thanks for GAP!
