AFAIK Texinfo does no character encoding conversion for the Info and
HTML output, so the LilyPond devels have decided to use the modern
character set UTF-8, not Latin1. This will really become a problem for
the PDF (outputted by Texinfo/TeX) when we decide to make PDF of Lily
docs translation.

Well, you can safely ignore these warnings.
