Ah, that's a little bizarre. For some reason my info file was 6.21,
which refers to the single prefix usage. I went to the top level node
than went back into the org-mode info and it was 6.25.

I say this is bizarre because I update org-mode (and docs) most days
and the info has been opened and closed many times since 6.21. The
instructions match what you say.

Cue the theme from 'The Twilight Zone'...

Thanks for your help.
