OED supports that specific case.

Don't know.  Will have to look it up in the f95 draft in due course.

`~' isn't a legal character in a URL (unless RFC 1738 has been
superseded fairly recently).

Harmful pasting from mail...  I suppose I should pull them down and
check.

Doubled open/close single quotes are TeX ligatures producing proper
double quotes and rendered as `"' by makeinfo.  I think the Texinfo
manual is misleading in what it says; will pursue with karl.  I
naturally use British/hacker quoting (per Jargon File).  I could get
Emacs to Yank single quotes if important.

Maybe; doubtless so if this was DocBook markup.  Can check cases of
which you're doubtful.

Do I check this in after fixing it and doing suitable riting penance?
