This was done to be able to separate html output from the other formats.

pdf, ebub and mobi all output one single file. html outputs a whole series of 
files. Putting those in their own directory creates one entry point per format 
in the language directory.

Granted it could have been "gnucash-guide.html" for even more consistency.
