As far as *printing* is concerned, I don't know whether it is very hard to 
create a "basic" manual and an "advanced" manual from the files that create the 
*whole* manual (standard+specialized) when creating the printed files, but it 
seems to be only a matter of configuring a few files. For digital versions, all 
the informations should be in *the* emacs manual.

I have 2 other issues regarding the manual:
• I'm not finding the "specialized" manual in Info mode.
• The emacs manual is *not* an introductory manual, so I don't think we should 
have an "Advanced Features" section where most of the chapters could actually 
be placed in sections that relate to their contents (as I kind of proposed in 
the re-shuffling I sent in my earlier mail).
