Re: cross manual references in html manuals

    Node names do not get printed in the printed copy of the manual, so
    any markup commands are useless in them.

Well, they usually get printed as part of the @xref output, unless the
author takes the time to use three-argument @xref.

Also, forgetting about TeX, the node names show up in HTML.  And HTML
can support @code and other such things.  Same would be true for various
XML processors.

It would be "nice" to fully support @ commands in node names.  I just
don't think there's any practical way to do it.
