3.2 Texinfo crash course

The language is called texinfo; you can see its manual here: http://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo/manual/texinfo/

However, you don’t need to read those docs. The most important thing to notice is that text is text. If you see a mistake in the text, you can fix it. If you want to change the order of something, you can cut-and-paste that stuff into a new location.

Note: Rule of thumb: follow the examples in the existing docs. You can learn most of what you need to know from this; if you want to do anything fancy, discuss it on lilypond-devel first.
