I am not sure either.  I couldn’t get cross-referencing working.


The texinfo part of the Org manual could use a section on

Are you talking about info pages now?  Because in pdf and html it’s not an
issue as far as I’m aware.

Could you provide an example?  I have mostly seen numbered sections
without subtitles

I would agree, but perhaps I’m biased since I don’t have much of a working
knowledge of texinfo other than enough to add sections to an existing

You could look at the texinfo manual and see if we are missing something


On the top of my head it would be good to have a cross-referencing
section, though I think that there may not be support for too
sophisticated referencing, at least judging from address@hidden

Another area that seems slightly lacking is support for all markings, so
perhaps there could be a section on accessing your favorite via
‘org-texinfo-text-markup-alist’ (if ‘org-texinfo--text-markup’ supports
it) and the rest via macros, if necessary.
