In general I am in favor of HTML too. My only concern is that the GitHub
version might not be the latest version and people might get confused
somehow. Being someone who filed a bug about es5.github.com being
outdated, I am sure there are differences.

Having said that, I don't find [1] useful too. Linking to the wiki
page[2] might actually be better, as it has links to all versions of ES5
and drafts of ES6.
