I'm trying to use @strong{Note:} in a Texinfo document, but makinfo warns
gettext.texi:5561: warning: @strong{Note...} produces a spurious 
cross-reference in Info; reword to avoid that.
and indeed the info program interprets it as a hyperlink.

I can agree to write it differently, as @strong{NOTE:}, but this _still_
generates the same warning. Although the references that makeinfo produces
are all capitalized, not uppercase. It is annoying that a tool wants to
prescribe to the documentation author which words to use or not to use, or
- as texinfo's doc, section "address@hidden'{TEXT} and address@hidden'{TEXT}", 
does -
prescribe to use @quotation for something that is not a quotation.

Could you please
  1) Change the "info" program to recognize only "*Note" and not "*NOTE"
     as a hyperlink,
  2) Change the "makeinfo" program to process @strong{NOTE:} just like it
     would process @strong{FOOBAR:}?

I am now temporarily using extra spaces:    @strong{ NOTE: }
Do you agree that this is not optimal?
