PATCH: book: miscellaneous minor fixes

From: Julian Foad <julianfoad_at_btopenworld.com>
Date: 2003-06-26 00:06:54 CEST

Minor fixes to documentation.

* doc/book/book/ch01.xml
* doc/book/book/ch05.xml
  Fix grammar.

* doc/book/book/ch08.xml
  Fix grammar of a reference to a syntax specification.
  Change a note (that explains that no log output means no change) from type
  "warning" to type "tip" because it is not a dangerous situation.

* doc/README
  Update our rules for quoting, because we want to use <quote> which is not the
  standard practice in texinfo.
