Thanks very much. I'll send you the files off-list although I've now had a
little more luck.

First, a little more background. There are two "manuals" I'm trying to convert:
the Cygwin User's Guide, and the Cygwin API Reference. The User's Guide is 
what I've been concentrating on, but I thought I'd give the API ref a try. 
I edited the file to remove the &copy; HTML code (what's that doing there?) and
ran docbook2texi -u on it. For some reason this produced a texinfo file named
"api.html". makeinfo gave less than a page of errors! After hand-editing a
couple of the preamble lines it actually creates a usable info file! No such
luck with the ug.sgml, but at least I think I'm on the right track. 

Thanks again for the ideas and help.
