[PATCH] Remove @hsep and @vsep usage from info pages

2012-12-03  Allan McRae  <>

	* manual/stdio.texi (Predefined Printf Handlers): Remove
	@hsep and @vsep usage.


As far as I can tell, @hsep and @vsep have not been supported in texinfo for
a long time, although it attempted to add the requested separators resulting
in ugliness:

     |' '|1||' '|1|
     |k|2^10 (1024)|kilo|K|10^3 (1000)|

Go to "info libc" then 
IO on streams -> Customizing Printf -> Predefined Printf Handlers
to see this section.

With texinfo 4.13.91, this becomes an error:

./stdio.texi:3140: Unknown command `hsep'
./stdio.texi:3140: Unknown command `vsep'

There is also 215 lines of warnings to be fixed at a later date...
