Online copies of textinfo content available?

Many man pages end with:
The full documentation for Ed is maintained as a Texinfo manual. If the info > and XYZ programs are properly installed at your site, the command

    info XYZ

should give you access to the complete manual.

I have problems with that.
1. I don't want to install unneeded packages just to find out whether or
   not the package might be useful.
2. The info output has an annoying format. A browser acceptable format
   {plain text fine --  HTML *NOT* needed} is MUCH more functional.
