10.9 @display: Examples Using the Text Font

The @display command begins another kind of environment, where the font is left unchanged, not switched to typewriter as with @example. Each line of input still produces a line of output, and the output is still indented.

This is an example of text written between an @display command
and an @end display command.  The @display command
indents the text, but does not fill it.

Texinfo also provides the environment @smalldisplay, which is like @display but uses a smaller font size. See section @small… Block Commands.

The @table command (see section Using the @table Command) is not supported inside @display. Since @display is line-oriented, it doesn’t make sense to use them together. If you want to indent a table, try @quotation (see section @quotation: Block Quotations) or @indentedblock (see section @indentedblock: Indented text blocks).
