  This (the Directory node) gives a menu of major topics. 
  Typing "d" returns here, "q" exits, "?" lists all INFO commands, "h" 
  gives a primer for first-timers, "mTexinfo<Return>" visits Texinfo topic,
  etc.

  This info tree is maintained by the n-dim project.  Quite a few of
  the nodes are symbolic links into various places in AFS.  We try
  to keep things up to date, but they change out from under us quite
  often.

  We have merged nodes from FSF emacs and XEmacs.  Where it could be
  ambiguous, we mark the node as coming from either the FSF or lucid
  info tree (for instance, there are two elisp reference manual nodes).

  Please report inconsistencies, broken links or whatever you feel like
  reporting to snl@paneer.ndim.edrc.cmu.edu.

The list of major topics begins on the next line.

  -- Pointers to other Info Realms --

* emacs18
Top node of the Emacs version 18 info nodes, which contains some things of relevance to V19/[LX]Emacs users.
  vvvv This is busted because Andrew /usr/contributed doesn't have a 
       valid directory file for their info tree...                   vvvv

* andrew contrib tree
Some info nodes available under /usr/contributed in Andrew.
  -- Things that Info Can't Point At Directly --

I'll put interesting info resources that are accessible via other
means (like HTTP) here.  If you have some way of following a URL from
info mode, good for you; otherwise, just cut and paste.  Send me your
suggestions; they don't necessarily have to be in TeXinfo format.

+ http://sunfish.ics.es.osaka-u.ac.jp:8500/dir
    Cool info tree, including Japanese-related stuff AND some of the
    original info nodes from the MIT ITS machines.  Pretty nifty.
