Let me post a screen shot from Emacs.

This opens right in my editor window.  It has structured navigation
which does not go off-screen, you can navigate using single keypresses,
you can search plain text, you can copy and paste, rendering is
instantanously, the whole document is indexed and you can navigate by
search index.  And it shows both Lilypond input and output.

Very valuable if you use Emacs, still useful when using an external info
reader.  I can switch back and forth between info pages and source code
without changing my editing window.

Yes, it is a life-saver for working with Lilypond with me.
