I have tried to link to a specific paragraph in an info file.  The info docs
do not mention linking with the "info" link type.  Files are linkable with
"file".

This link can link to a search inside an org file:
         file:projects.org::some words

I cannot make such a link work in an info file.  Is this possible?

An automatically generated link to an info file looks like this:
         info:org:Structure%20editing

However, the following does not work.
         info:org:Structure%20editing::sort same-level"

Is there another way to make this work?  I would like to link to specific
parts of an info file, perhaps selecting a few words to link to.

Alan

Links to info can reference a node, I do not
think that there is finer control.  You can always hack something,
the point to start would be org-info-follow-link.  I guess you
could implement chopping off a search string and searching for it.
