Hi OTP Team and others,

First the patch itself:

git fetch git://github.com/jlouis/otp.git jl-documentation-fixes

The patch corrects a typo and also cleans up a bit in the surrounding 
paragraph while I am at it. The commit-message is intentionally kept 
short since the change is fully representable by the diff itself. I have 
run no tests on the code but have verified that the users guide 
documentation looks ok after the change, in html and in the pdf.

A way to proceed would be to curate all these small documentation-fixes 
into a larger patch first and then apply that larger patch. Whatever you 
want to do.

Patch follows for discussion:
