Don't confuse the file format (which isn't that bad) with the reader (which is 
"what can we do that is as difficult to learn as emacs, and designed to run 
on a minimal termal).

I don't know when it was introduced, but my Konqueror installation just allows 
me to type
into the  Location bar (where you'd normally type http://www.google.com.au)

That allows a fairly usable browser capability, which is probably OK if you 
don't need too much. If you need a lot, I'd recommend converting the TeXinfo 
into PDF or postscript, and print it out and read on the bus.
