As you can see on the above url, manual consists of several chapters.
XML version can be retreived from debian-installer subversion

Files appear in the manual in the following order:
bookinfo, preface, welcome, hardware, preparing, install-methods,
boot-installer, using-d-i, boot-new, post-install
installation-howto, preseed, partitioning, random-bits, administrivia,
The chapters dealing with hardware are a bit more complicated, because
they could mention weird names, acronyms, etc.
IMO I would start with bookinfo, preface, welcome, installation-howto
and then slowly the rest.
