My feeling is that "info" is a fine format, and the viewer in emacs is a
fine viewer (the standalone program manages to be terrible, despite being
barely different from the emacs one). The main problem is that there
isn't a standard organization of the information in the file, and all of
the examples I've seen are very hard to use for reference. (For example,
by looking at the info node for "ls", try to figure out what -F does,
what the default colors are, and how to get other colors; I had to go to
a pre-info man page to find out some of this, since the current man pages
have removed all of the information that isn't in the info nodes).
