This is very helpful. Thank you. :)

I get to the GNU Emacs FAQ with `C-h F', but I can't just do, say, ``C-
h F htmlize-buffer RET'' (you mention ``some command from the
library'' I load, and one of the commands in htmlize is htmlize-
buffer), since, when I start typing ``ht''..., the info reader thinks
I'm giving it info commands.

Also, incidentally (though I don't think it's directly related to your
suggestion), this is on Debian Etch, and the Emacs manual is
conspicuously missing...

Thanks,
