[ There are two messages preceding this one in the thread. It is
about a rewrite of the Debian GNU/Linux `install-info' perl script.

Emacs info mode will highlight:
Topic Heading becomes *bold* _underline_
Topic Heading becomes *bold* /italic/ _underline_
Topic Heading becomes /italic/ _underline_
I've just pasted that fontification into the XEmacs-20.3beta version
of `info.el' also. I think that the Debian `install-info' script
should be able to cope with the ====, ----, and **** underline
characters, by putting added info entries below the underline
characters, not between them and the heading, and that it should
insert underlineing too, when it creates a new heading, to make the
directory look better.
So you can have topic headings in nodes, and subnodes in dir files.
Debian question: How are package maintainers to decide where to
install-info the manuals to their package?
Here's what *my* setup looks like right now. I've got
`Info-default-directory-list' set to:
'("/usr/local/src/xemacs-20/info/" ; dir from XEmacs
"/usr/info/" ; dir from Debian
"/usr/local/lib/xemacs/packages/info/" ; localdir
"/usr/local/info/") ; neither
... and `Info-additional-directory-list' is set to:
I've editted the dir that comes with XEmacs to change the "Packages"
heading line to:
... and have removed the "* Locals:" line that was at the end of it.
The localdir in ...packages/info/, which you can see is the third
directory to be processed, looks like this:
* Calc:: Calculator mode for XEmacs.
* Gnus:: A netnews and mail reader for XEmacs.
* Message:: Emacs message composition mode.
It gets seamlessly inserted below the Local... line and becomes part
of (in the upper portion of) the main menu of (dir)Top, which is the
XEmacs-20.3beta dir with the Debian /usr/info/dir catenated to the end
