    don't have a transliteration, like @exclamdown...

- Update to texinfo 4.13a (18 September 2008)
  * A reference card for Texinfo is now available, in doc/refcard.  For
    convenience, preformatted PDF's for letter-size and A4 paper are included.
  * makeinfo:
    . new option --internal-links for HTML output, to write a tsv file
    mapping indexed/toc terms to links, for easy reference from external
    . - as an input file name reads standard input.
  * info:
    . support for multibyte encodings such as UTF-8.
    . new option --show-malformed-multibytes, to display malformed multibyte
    . new environment variable INFO_MAN_COMMAND sets the name of man binary
    (use it if you a need to override PATH settings).
  * install-info:
    . bug fix: support names with embedded periods (e.g., config.status) again.
  * Distribution:
    . autoconf 2.63.
* Sun Jun 15 2008
- Update to texinfo 4.12.
  * Language:
    . new commands @clicksequence, @click, and @clickstyle for documenting
    GUI sequences, and @arrow for the default glyph used.
    . new commands @geq{} and @leq{} for the normal >= and <= relations.
  * install-info:
    . lzma compression supported.
    . Much work towards compatibility with Debian's independent
    implementation.  Changes in behavior:
  - new entries are formatted to start at column 34 by default.
  - existing entries are replaced by default.
  - new sections are alphabetized among existing sections.
  - if an entry being removed is the last one in a section, the
  section is also removed.
    . Also many new options:
  - -section REGEX TITLE.
  - -no-indent: disable formatting of new entries.
  - -menuentry, --name: specify left-hand side of an entry.
  - -dry-run: alias for --test.
  - -regex REGEX: renamed from --section regex, adds to all sections
  matching REGEX by default.
  - -add-once: add only to first specified or matching section.
  - -align COL: start description at column COL.
  - -calign COL: start continuation lines in description at COL.
  - -max-width COL: wrap the description at COL.
    . New section in the Texinfo manual describing all this.
  * Info:
    Our goal with these changes to the default interface is to make Info
    documents more easily and quickly readable, especially by non-experts.
    . the PageUp and PageDown keys move through the whole document by
    default, instead of just the current node.
    . the h command shows the basic help, and H starts the Info tutorial.
    . the newly-bound x command deletes the current window, e.g., within help.
    . the scroll-step variable is set to 1 by default, for smooth scrolling.
    . the cursor-movement-scrolls-p variable is set to 1 by default, so
    link searches look through the whole document.
    . regular expression searches are supported, and are the default for
    both regular and incremental searches.
    . the new R command toggles between regexp and literal-string searches.
    . the new variable scroll-last-node controls scrolling at the end of
    the last node; by default, it now simply reports there are no more
    nodes.  To restore the old behavior, set scroll-last-node=Scroll.
    . the precise line number specified in index entries is used if available.
    . --usage=info shows usage for standalone Info.
    . lzma compression supported.
  * Distribution:
    . language support for no removed/renamed to nb, per Norwegian translators.
    . new translation: es.
    . bug fixes in make check (and elsewhere).
    . gettext 0.17, automake 1.10.1, autoconf 2.62.
