No, the automatic language selection only works if the docs from
out-www/online-root are put on an Apache server with content
negotiation.  In the "offline" docs, you should keep browsing pages in
the same language (or in English for the untranslated pages, but going
back to the selected language as soon as the desired page is translated)
as soon as you select this language at the bottom of one page.

Thanks; I put back the notice in English too.

@samp is a standard Texinfo command.

We did the same thing in French tutorial.  In fact it is fully explained
in Basic notation, but in translated docs this issue is important enough
to be discussed in the tutorial IMHO.

I'm leaving only tomorrow ;-)

I don't think so; the French docs were first announced when only the
tutorial was translated.  You have already done much enough to deserve
an annoucement, even if you might need some more time to polish :-)
