fun with texinfo

here's a fun note that may help someone else pulling their hair out trying to get texinfo's texi2dvi to handle input that uses sequences like @^i to generate the letter 'i' with a circumflex ('î'). if you get errors like this:

! Missing $ inserted.
<inserted text> 
<to be read again>
l.1234 this '@^
            i' has a funny hat.
it means that you forgot \input texinfo in the first line of your texinfo file.


And if you're still using texinfo to make the mysql documentation you should switch it docbook already ;-)
