Bison manual does not mention Emacs

The manual for Bison version 1.28, 1999 Jan 14, 
bison.texinfo, does not mention GNU Emacs.  

I think we all just assumed that anyone editing with Emacs would visit
a file and see what happens -- Emacs does the right thing.
But I just came across a person who did not do that.

A one line sentence would work:

    You can edit bison or yacc files using GNU Emacs.

But it would be really nice if someone who understood this sort of
thing would write a short chapter, `Editing with GNU Emacs'.  
People may not think of syntaxic highlighting (font lock), etags, M-x
compile, M-x gdb, and the new Info-lookup and ebnf2ps commands.
