I have plenty of these. Here is an example:

@chapter A letter from Per@'uvian Congressman Edgar David Villanueva address@hidden to Juan Alberto Gonz@'alez, General Manager of Microsoft Per@'u

(no word wrap in the original)

TeX handles this surprisingly well. However, I get this in Info:

A letter from Peru'vian Congressman Edgar David Villanueva Nun~ez to Juan Alberto Gonza'lez, General Manager of Microsoft Peru'

(no word wrap in text) Regardless of how correct this is, it is silly. And makeinfo seems to produce the correct result of "@'u" later in the document, and I'm sure that "@'a" wouldn't be much trouble either.

So I ask that these lines be wrapped in info just like text, and the length of the *** line be limited to whatever the wrapping margin is set to.
