I've got RosettaMan working using rman
(ftp://ftp.cs.berkeley.edu/ucb/people/phelps/tcltk/rman.tar.Z) and
rman.pl (a WWW front-end for rman), which gives me a stable front-end
to any and all man pages on the system.

I'm also running info2www, a CGI script for accessing GNU info pages.
Can't remember where the source is, but I found RedHat's RPM of it at
RH's ftp site (/pub/contrib/i386/).
