My complaint about info is that unlike html, the navigation is not clear and
the search is worse.  The possible links aren't always marked in a way that
indicates they are, and there are references like "check out such and such
in section whatever"...  No link to it.  This is my experience with exim,
which is only documented usefully in info format.

If not for info2www, I would not be running exim now.  If I were trying exim
on my notebook or a 486, I would have long since given up..  I don't run
apache on such machines.
