The standalone info goes to the wrong place in the example we have
been looking at.  Instead of going to the intended place:

 - Variable: file-coding-system-alist

It goes to:

     files and the contents of `file-coding-system-alist' (see below).

in the description of `auto-coding-regexp-alist'.

While it is very useful to go to the intended place, it is a lot
better to just go to the top of the node than to attempt to guess.
Going to the wrong place misleads the user.
