The info program is very bare-bones (no fonts or images). On the other hand, the info program has a number of conveniences for browsing documentation, and the keyboard-centric user interface is very efficient.

The main goal is to re-implement the user-interface features of the terminal-based info program (such as convenient keyboard navigation from a document), but in the context of a web browser displaying xhtml.

The features of the info program that we would like to replicate in JavaScript include:

- Keyboard-centric UI
- Fast, responsive UI
- Index search
