The purpose is to take advantage of the superior qualities of the Info reader in Emacs compared with other formats, viz.
- Single-key index lookup with completion: i.
- Single-key full text regexp search: s
- Convenient symbol lookup from source code: C-h C-i

Has anybody compared the results with the manual supplied with GCL which is also derived from the draft ANSI standard?
