The HTML docs used to be postprocessed into postscript and made available
as one big file so people didn't have to use a "web browser" to read them.  
The scripts that did it are probably around somewhere... the %plaintext
stuff was used as part of some latex step or something like that.

I think this was in the 1.0 timeframe, or somewhere around there... before
my time anyway.

So they are very obsolete, not properly maintained anyway, and not the
way we would want to maintain multiformat documentation now anyway.
