Re: Interaction between closing bracket, capital letter and full stop at

    recognized after "HTML." because you need "address@hidden" for that, but I'm

I went through the manuals at one point and changed a bunch of ML. to
address@hidden, but I guess more have crept in.  (Also an occasional @! and @?.)

    not sure if the cases with closing brackets are correct.

Closing parens are irrelevant, as Andreas described, so @. is needed
in cases like
  HTML)@. Foo
  address@hidden) Foo
too.  (Test file below.)

    (This doesn't seem to be the whole story because it doesn't cover the
    case of "closing punctuation" BEFORE the full stop.)

I guess.  Will tweak.

anyone know?

    Plain TeX sets \sfcode`\)=0 \sfcode`\'=0 \sfcode`\]=0, which makes these
    three characters transparent wrt. the spacefactor.

texinfo.tex and makeinfo have always implemented the same rule.  C
makeinfo did so in fewer cases that Perl makeinfo, but the basic idea
was there.


\input texinfo
@setfilename sentence-end.info

@paragraphindent 0

How about address@hidden  L With @@address@hidden
How about TAB.  L Just address@hidden
How about tab.  L Lowercase.

(How about TAB)@.  L With @@address@hidden
(How about TAB).  L Just address@hidden
(How about tab).  L Lowercase.

(How about address@hidden)  L With @@address@hidden
(How about TAB.)  L Just address@hidden
(How about tab.)  L Lowercase.
