In addition to `i', which is always a good idea whenever you don't
know the name of the node, there are usually much easier methods.

Recall that `l' in the node A leads to the node B from where you went
to the node A.  Now, what are the ways you could go from B to A?  They
are:

  - type "m NODE-NAME RET"
  - type "g NODE-NAME RET"
  - type "f NODE-NAME RET"
  - go to a menu item and press RET
  - go to a cross-reference and press RET

Each one of these is easy to reproduce: the first 3 by typing the same
command and then using command history to find the name of the node
you typed last, the last two by typing RET as soon as `l' does its thing.
