Please, consider that Karl uses an old and credited style of quoting messages
by indenting the text and removing the excess of marks.  It is a very
clean style
and is present in a few cite Emacs packages for decades.  This is not what I
use, but I can read perfectly the thread.

As I can see, the requests from users are about technical issues and Karl
always responds.  But Texinfo is, by design, a relatively simple language and
not intended to replace TeX, a much more full-featured system.  But we can
take advantage of the simplicity of Texinfo and add and pass to the
documents some TeX constructs.  I am preparing a few Texinfo templates
for paper books that soon will be at the page.

Peace and loving hacking!!
