I see, but it is a bit inconvenient for languages with accented 
characters... I don't know any language with udotaccent, but it must
exist, otherwise it won't be in texinfo ;-) (the texinfo I processed
was used for tests only).

makeinfo even without any option process this right to create the info 
file. And TeX accepts other kinds of accented characters, but I remember
that there were problems with accented characters in crossrefs. What 
pushed me to do that report was that with other accented characters things
went more smoothly.
