info links from Emacs

| emacs
;; The following functions to insert info-links into a buffer were originaly
;; posted on gnu.emacs.gnus by Reiner Steib, August 2003.
;; Message-ID: 

(defvar jk/info-goto-node-string "info" ; "Info-goto-node"
  ;; Stefan Monnier suggested to use `info' instead of `Info-goto-node', but
  ;; this doesn't work for XEmacs.  OTOH, Reiner says he submitted a patch for
  ;; XEmacs, so "info" should be okay.
