Konqueror certainly can explore inside .tar.gz and .tar.bz2 files as if they were directories, and open any file (html or otherwise) inside.

Do you mean how it does it in terms of implementation? Or do you mean it's not working for you?

Type in man:<topic> in the address bar. info:<topic> may also work.
At the bottom of an info page it says:
Automatically generated by a version of info2html modified for KDE.

man2html is used as a filter by konqueror.

If you have an application launcher on your taskbar, you can enter
Into the application launcher to bring up a konqueror displaying the manpage.
I find this format to be easier to read and remember.
