Thanks.  I think this patch improves the look of the Info, so I've
applied it to CVS head.  But I notice two problems with the indexing:

- The index entries for procedures with a colon in their names,
  e.g. utsname:nodename, do not work.

- The variable index entries for, e.g., _IONBF, jump to the top of the
  containing page, not to the exact location of the index command.

Any idea how to fix these?
