Here, @ttie{} is a macro that doesn't contain any Texinfo command.

This doesn't solve the issue, where the goal is to write the
same text for Info, HTML and PDF. That's precisely why I needed
the @ttie{} macro, whose expansion depends on the output type.

If the @w ignored in math mode?
The manual just says:
The space from '@w{ }', as well as being non-breakable, also will not
stretch or shrink. Sometimes that is what you want, for instance if
you're doing manual indenting. However, usually you want a normal
interword space that does stretch and shrink (in the printed output);
for that, see the '@tie' command in the next section.
For PDF output, I want the spaces to be the usual ones that are
generated in math mode.
