Thanks, I fixed this in a slightly different way.

P.S. Do you really use [ and ] in Info when reading a manual?

Thank you.

Yes I do; I like that they always behave as 'next page', with no
sorprise.
For instance, if you are at section X.y, then ']' bring me to
X.y.z,
while 'n' goes to X.y+1 which discuss something unrelated with what
I am digging in that moment.

I didn't mean 'n' and 'p', I meant SPC and DEL.

No I don't use them (neither in buffers in view-mode); I am too used
to scroll myself.
