[ Internally, they are constructed using the values of
`Info-current-file' and `Info-current-node' in the info mode buffer. ]

The doc string says "Insert reference to current Info node [...] in
buffer".  Inserting something in info mode should just signal an error
("Buffer is read-only").  The typical use case is:

- Navigate to the manual node in question

- Go (back) to the other buffer (mail buffer, ...) where you want to
  place the reference.

- Do `M-x rs-info-insert-current-node RET'

`rs-info-goto-node-string' is a variable, not a command.

Bye, Reiner.
