    I must say I prefer "AbiWord"...

    Given that the documentation sits in en_US folder, it is a little
    ironic that the documentation itself is primarily en_GB. I am
    completely biased, of course, but I prefer the latter...

    The format of the info files is 3 lines consisting of:
    1. The document title (please make sure this title is also set as the
    document's title).
    2. A copyright statement.
    3. A list of hyperlinks showing position in the documentation tree,
    e.g., [Home] > [How To] > Tables.
