After you said that, I'm confused too. My Info file is not
compressed. I put a test info file on my web page, which is

I used GNU Emacs for many years, but to Emacs Lisp programming, I'm
only a rookie. When I read Big5 Info file for testing purpose, I saw
undecoded 8bit sequences on my screen. Logically, I guess that's
because wrong coding system in info buffer. So I search info.el for
any coding-system settings, I found only one,
i.e. coding-system-for-write, and I changed it, then it works. The
story is that simple, I didn't trace any code. :-)
