Is this a directory? If so use a / if not, how do you deal with the
chapter seperation for html? :(

So long as there is an index for the various formats languages as
index.html within the directory. Someone pointed out to me that there
was no way of knowing if a pdf/ps was available because index.html was
the first page of the manual.

I'm just interested in tidying this up as i had to ssh into gluck to
identify if a pdf of a manual was available for a friend.

Moreover if we do more seperation the generation of single file html and
seperated chapter versions would be useful. =)
