This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:



The doc string for make-translation-table has some typos: for for
instead of for, elemnts instead of elements, and a instead of an
before ordinary.

This is the old doc string:

  "Make a translation table from arguments.
A translation table is a char table intended for for character
translation in CCL programs.

Each argument is a list of elemnts of the form (FROM . TO), where FROM
is a character to be translated to TO.

FROM can be a generic character (see `make-char').  In this case, TO is
a generic character containing the same number of characters, or a
ordinary character.  If FROM and TO are both generic characters, all
characters belonging to FROM are translated to characters belonging to TO
without changing their position code(s).

The arguments and forms in each argument are processed in the given
order, and if a previous form already translates TO to some other
character, say TO-ALT, FROM is also translated to TO-ALT."


Suggested new doc string:

  "Make a translation table from arguments.
A translation table is a char table intended for character translation
in CCL programs.

Each argument is a list of elements of the form (FROM . TO), where FROM
is a character to be translated to TO.

FROM can be a generic character (see `make-char').  In this case, TO is
a generic character containing the same number of characters, or an
ordinary character.  If FROM and TO are both generic characters, all
characters belonging to FROM are translated to characters belonging to TO
without changing their position code(s).

The arguments and forms in each argument are processed in the given
order, and if a previous form already translates TO to some other
character, say TO-ALT, FROM is also translated to TO-ALT."
