My point is how to mark non-printable characters like ESC (not keyboard
keys to be pressed) properly in texinfo. The current practice to mark
them like @key{ESC} looks OK to me, but it is not documented.

I'm speaking about a text which explains data structures for example, no
keyboard input.

Best regards, Michael.
