      Remove the term "on-line" (meaning "Info") throughout, since · 85b438b7
      Glenn Morris authored
      in this day and age the common meaning is "on the web".
      (copying): Use @copyright in all cases.
      (Basic keys): Remove reference to deleted manual node "Text Characters".
      (File-name conventions): Use GNU as an example rather than SERVICE.
      default.el lives in site-lisp.  Update Info directory location.
      (Real meaning of copyleft): GPL actions have been brought, but all
      settled out of court.
      (Guidelines for newsgroup postings): Shorten section title.
      Simplify comp.emacs description.
      (Newsgroup archives): Change Google URL.  Describe Gmane.
      (Unsubscribing from Emacs lists): Remove discussion of "distribution
      points".  Mention List-Unsubscribe header.
      (Contacting the FSF): Update email and URLs.
      (Basic editing): Mention F1 for help.
      (Installing Texinfo documentation): Refer to Texinfo website rather
      than ftp server.
      (Printing a Texinfo file): Mention texi2pdf.
      (Informational files for Emacs): Don't describe FTP or SERVICE, they
      are just stubs nowadays.
      (Latest version of Emacs): Explain version numbers.
      (Spell-checkers, Checking TeX and *roff documents): Remove sections.
      (Turning on syntax highlighting): No need to mention hilit19 any more.
      (Finding Emacs on the Internet): Refer to URLs rather than DISTRIB, FTP.
      (Modes for various languages): Remove section.
      (Major packages and programs): Remove most version and maintainer
      information - it's hard to keep up-to-date, and adds nothing.
      Similarly with direct links to mailing lists.
      (Spell-checkers): Rename node from Ispell.  Mention Aspell and Hunspell.
      (Mailcrypt): Remove section - mailcrypt has not been updated in mnay
      years, and Emacs comes with tools for this now.
      (Patch): Remove section - this is a standard tool.
      (Using function keys under X): Remove section.

      (Top): Add @top command. · f0bf7708
      Glenn Morris authored
      Remove the optional arguments from all @node commands: makeinfo can
      generate these automatically, and it is easier to edit and rearrange
      nodes without them.

      Glenn Morris authored

      (Linking with -lX11 fails): Remove old section.
      (Packages that do not come with Emacs): Update ELL location.
      Emacs Lisp archive is dead.

      Glenn Morris authored
      (The LPF): Make the updated URL the sole reference point.
      (Learning how to do something): Update refcard price and format.
      (Getting a printed manual): Sources in doc/emacs/, not man/.

      (Informational files for Emacs): Remove references to deleted files
      LPF and SUN-SUPPORT, and to UUCP.
      (Obtaining the FAQ): Refer to the service web-page rather than SERVICE.

      distributed with Emacs.
