I see, however, a difference between pdftexinfo and 'normal-dvi-outputting'
texinfo. With texinfo this vertical justification works and with pdftexinfo
the spaces between the section or subsection heading and the next paragraph
is very much dependant on the texts on the page. Using texinfo this looks
completely different.
