Bob, thanks for the report.  The current version of m4 (1.4.4) does have
an updated address for reporting bugs in the README, address@hidden

As for the Emacs reference, cross-manual references in HTML output from
Texinfo manuals are something not completely worked out at this point.
What's needed is some configuration file to allow specifying what to do
with them.  I've had some discussion about this, but haven't implemented
anything yet.

I don't think the m4 manual really needs to do anything at this point,
unless you folks feel like going to the extraordinary measure of
postprocessing the HTML output with a sed/perl/whatever script to fix
the href.

In the section on regular expressions, the link to the emacs
documentation for the regular expression syntax is bad.

Where you have the relative url in the href at
<a href="emacs.html#Regexps">Syntax of Regular Expressions</a>

You need to have the absolute url
http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/emacs.html#Regexps instead:
of Regular Expressions</a>

Currently, it link gets a 404 trying to load a page at

P.S. The published email address for reporting bugs is no longer valid:

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<address@hidden>: host mx10.gnu.org []: 550 *.ai.mit.edu no longer in use. use @gnu.org instead.
