thanks but it seems to work only partially
File: dir Node: Top This is the top of the INFO tree
This (the Directory node) gives a menu of major topics.
* Menu: The list of major topics begins on the next line.
Info files in /usr/share/xemacs21/xemacs-packages/info/:
* BBDB: (bbdb). The Insidious Big Brother Database.
* Bbdb:: [No description available]
* Build: (build). Build XEmacs from within (UNIX, Windows).
* Build:: [No description available]
Etc, note that the notes are doubled and half of them have no
(I tried xemacs -q - no-site-file)
The lispref manual is missing tough
Aidan> C-u M-! locate lispref.info | head -1 RET
debian is obsessed about gzipping

Aidan> C-u C-h i C-y RET
Aidan> You should see a page starting with
Aidan> This Info file contains the third edition of the XEmacs Lisp
Aidan> Reference Manual, corresponding to XEmacs version 21.0.
This works but I think it is not the way to do it

I think a file a report!
PS I keep insisting (could you *please* use ASCII)
