`l' takes you to the page you came from. You can press `u' to move "up"
in the document tree structure.


I think of the keys as mnemonics for "left" and "right" (like the arrows
in many web browsers).


...because "r" moves you "forward" after you've pressed "l".  :)

Perhaps we should also bind M-<left>  and M-<right>  to
Info-history-back resp. Info-history-forward, because many browsers
and other apps use that.


I wouldn't mind this personally, but I'm not sure it's such a good idea since I can imagine a lot of users like moving between words with those keys. Especially in terminals where Ctrl+arrows don't work (if I remember correctly).
