Para mode
Extension of Texinfo and Infosim mode.

Para mode is an extension of Texinfo and Infosim mode that includes some hypertext-like features. I chose the name Para mode (from the Greek word for beyond) to suggest that it is beyond Texinfo mode or Infosim mode, but not to claim that it is full-fledged hypertext system. Eventually, Para mode should be merged into Texinfo mode.

Para mode was inspired by Infosim mode, which was written by Matthew P Wiener.
