My view

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

Is this what your question meant?

I think he is referring to the way that the HTML manual is split up into 1317
separate files, one for each section. HTML (and texi2html) would also allow
fewer longer files with internal references to the sections as part of the
files. Given that my copy is local, so that bringing up a new section is
virtually instant, I like the split version, but for remote use fewer larger
files might make more sense.
