Hi there,

how do we get Info to work with the ESS info files?

I just downloaded the 5.1.20 version of ESS.  I use ESS every day, all the
time and would like the be able to access the Info files through the Emacs
Info system, I never succeded using Info with any versions of ESS.  ESS is
installed in: C:\Emacs\Emacs21.1\site-lisp\ess-5.1.20 and here is what I

1) In Emacs, I setted the variable "Info-enable-edit" to "t".
2) C-h i, to get to the Info system
3) Then e, to enable edit.
4) Went to the end of the Directory node
5) Added the line "* ESS:                c:
6) Saved the Directory node under C:\Emacs\Emacs-21.1\info\dir
7) C-c C-c, to get out of edition mode
8) q to get out of Info
9) Set the variable "Info-enable-edit" to "nil".

Then going back to Info to the new ESS node and hitting <enter> gives the
following error:

"No such anchor in tag table or node in tag table or file: C:

Any ideas?  Thanks,
