Yes that for one, but I don't know what is supposed to happen after it ran 
makeinfo a couple of times. Perhaps compile more? I can't remember...

Hmm, then i had better use a dash to make it work on more systems.

True, that's what it is for too. However I can paste fine from Netscape or 
Konqueror without problems. Haven't tried lynx yet, i'll try it for 2.4.3 and 
see what happens.

I guess not then (sorry that i missed the question the first time round).
