        Apart from being a very useful feature, this also helps to
        find errors visually in Info manuals.

    Thanks for noticing--will you fix them?

I already fixed the typos in the intro.  It is a useful tool for that.

          `"It's a tiger!"'; but when you evaluate `(type-of-animal 'zebra)',
          you will see `"It's not fierce!"'.

    What Texinfo code generates that?  It looks like someone put @samp
    around a Lisp string constant.  If so, that is incorrect usage; it
    should be @code, not @samp.

It is @code.  That is what makeinfo produces for Info.  In a Web
browser such as Emacs W3, Emacs W3M, or Firefox, or when printed, you
see only the double quotes.
