emacs: open info files properly
How does one use info files within Emacs, i.e., info documents other than the info manual? When I open them with "emacs /path/to/info/file" emacs opens them in their raw format (in fundamental mode). And there doesn't seem to be an M-X info-mode command.
I want to view them in Emacs instead of Gnu info for a few reasons, but especially because Emacs displays them in color. I am running Emacs 23.4.1.
