Actually, the Texinfo manual is traditionally produced using the same
version of Texinfo as the one described in the manual.  In the case of
the latest version, it's Texinfo 6.5, the latest version.

AFAIK, the cause of the difference in quoting style is that the
Texinfo manual doesn't use any @documentencoding directive, so the
output is plain-ASCII.

I mean, it's an accident that setting that variable to nil causes C-x
C-e to not echo hex or octal.

Indeed, this feature was only about showing the character, mainly
because for large enough value the display could be annoyingly delayed
while Emacs looks for a suitable font.

I don't think it's an accident, I think it's a very useful feature, as
one doesn't need to format the value specially when one needs hex or
octal string representation.

Yes, it is.  But whether makeinfo produces the curved quotes and other
non-ASCII characters can be controlled by the Texinfo source files,
and the Texinfo project evidently decided not to produce Info files
with non-ASCII characters, while Emacs made the opposite decision.  So
it's their decision, and if you want to convince them to change it,
you need to talk to them, as Texinfo is a separate project.

AFAIR, we never had such a feature, and the name of the option even
hints that all it controls is the character representation of the
integer number, as does its doc string.

I don't think it's a good idea to mix Emacs customization with the
Lisp programming introduction.  I described the additional
representation of the value in a footnote, and I think this is good
enough for that place to get the reader past the complication.  If we
start talking about customizing this display, we will risk losing the
main point of that node.

I felt this one wasn=E2=80=99t so much a bug but a ``quality'' =
disappointment.

After a walk, maybe the identical ascii double quote at both ends is an =

Oh, I think I intended eval-expression-print-maximum-character to only
affect the ?\C-d part, e.g., if you set it to 0, you get

    4 (#o4, #x4)

But I see there is no way to get a plain '4' except by (setq
eval-expression-print-maximum-character nil), which is kind of an
accident.

The point of TeX is beautiful typesetting.

I don=E2=80=99t want to create another bug report for why

  (+ 2 2)=20

gives the ``complication=E2=80=99=E2=80=99 by default

  4 (#o4, #x4, ?\C-d)

and not the simple

  4

Emacs 26.1-rc1 (NS Port) and Emacs 25.3 (Mac Port) both produce

  4 (#o4, #x4, ?\C-d)

In the below, it is not possible to set=20
`eval-expression-print-maximum-character=E2=80=99 to `nil=E2=80=99 to=20
achieve the simple `4=E2=80=99 result.=20
`M-x customize=E2=80=99 wants a number for 26.1-rc1 and the default is =
127.=20

  #+NAME: simple.el.gz
  #+BEGIN_SRC elisp n=3D1535
    If the resulting value is an integer, and CHAR-PRINT-LIMIT is
    non-nil (interactively, unless given a positive prefix argument)
    it will be printed in several additional formats (octal,
    hexadecimal, and character).  The character format is only used
    if the value is below CHAR-PRINT-LIMIT (interactively, if the
    prefix argument is -1 or the value is below
    `eval-expression-print-maximum-character').

  #+END_SRC

  #+NAME: eval-expression-print-maximum-character
  #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
    eval-expression-print-maximum-character is a variable defined in =
=E2=80=98simple.el=E2=80=99.
    Its value is 127

    Documentation:
    The largest integer that will be displayed as a character.
    This affects printing by =E2=80=98eval-expression=E2=80=99 (via
    =E2=80=98eval-expression-print-format=E2=80=99).

    You can customize this variable.

    This variable was introduced, or its default value was changed, in
    version 26.1 of Emacs.

  #+END_EXAMPLE

The backtrace diff I submitted in another bug needs undoing=20
because I believe the simple `4' result is better to keep in the earlier =
lisp intro.

Details about ``complications=E2=80=99=E2=80=99 is bulk the lisp intro =
can separate into a different book.=20

You are saying that the Texinfo manual uses ASCII quotes, and therefore
the opening and closing quotes are identical?  If so, the place to
complain about that is the Texinfo mailing list=2E  There's nothing wrong
that I could spot wrt quotes in the Lisp Intro manual=2E

Thanks=2E

You are saying that the Texinfo manual uses ASCII quotes, and therefore
the opening and closing quotes are identical?  If so, the place to
complain about that is the Texinfo mailing list=2E  There's nothing wrong
that I could spot wrt quotes in the Lisp Intro manual=2E
