@ifinfo handling by makeinfo vs. texi2html

I just noticed that ispell.texinfo has a few chunks of
documentation (one of which is its copyright) that are
bracketed by ``@ifinfo'' ... ``@end ifinfo'' pairs.

This causes those paragraphs to appear in the info
document (generated by ``makeinfo ispell.texinfo'')
but to not appear in the html document (generated by
``texi2html -monolithic ispell.texinfo'').

Is this a feature or bug in texi2html, and is there
an easy way around it?  Sorry, I'm a newbie regarding
.texinfo files.  

I ask because said copyright apparently doesn't want
itself to be suppressed:
