I'd suggest to make it explicit in the text that the document has to
be generated (if not cached); eg something like "generate printable version".

This last one would make other formats fit quite good; eg:

Note that for texi-converted html, it would probably be better to
forget "info", using either of /usr/doc/<pkg>/html/{texinfo,texi},
as /usr/doc/<pkg>/html/info would suggest something like info2www.
