You have to build with something like "make www-doc TAG=12.3".  It
looks like that adapting the workflow to makeinfo would require quite
some work and I'm not even sure that anything will change at all with
regard to splitting.

Maybe the only thing one could do is to add some text to section
"1.3.1 Functions for editing TeX files" to not have it completely
empty?  But still, there is technically not much wrong, it's that that
section is really empty and users need to press the next button to
read the next section.
