That's absolutly true.
Texinfo is good for browsing and for printing (I have printed the hurd
reference manual and it's really nice).

And texinfo is GNU...

hmmmm, and the MASTER of international distrubtion too ?
I think about characters maps (like this éèâç), french people
use those things, spanish and german too.

There is somes problem with texinfo (i remember my ç probleme,
\c c don't work like with tex just beacaus \c is used for
something else), and the gnumach don't support latin1 chars,
isn't it ?
