Hum, I should have reread that part, it is outdated when it says:

Apparently, John involuntarily reverted to an older version of the
syntax document as it wasn't like this when I translated it in French
back in March 2005.

If anyone wants the *un*reverted version of this document, as of when
I translated it, I kept a copy so I can diff with later versions and
spot easily the changes.
