Yes, probably.  So use @code{^} and @code{_} which will probably work.

You are right.

Well, `fill-paragraph' deletes the double spaces if
`sentence-end-double-space' is set to nil which apparently you seem to
have.  So set it to t just for the time you edit the auctex.texi file.

Great, that's good news!

I want you to successfully compile the texi file before submitting a doc
patch.  So if texinfo doesn't like the « » which is highly likely,
replace it with a texinfo construct (probably @code{}) which works.

See above.
