library.pdf, Section 25.4.3 Methods of RawTurtle/Turtle and
corresponding functions does not format the :param xxx: keyword
properly. The HTML version at http://docs.python.org/library/turtle.html
looks like

turtle.fd(distance)ΒΆ
    Parameters:	

        * distancea number (integer or float)

The formatting in HTML version is 100% correct, since it misses a space
between 'distance' and 'a', but at least is readable. The screenshot of
the PDF is not really readble. There is also the space missing between
the parameter and its description.

The formatting in HTML version is 100% correct,
s/is 100% correct/is NOT 100% correct/. 

Sorry for the typo.

Ihave seen this formatting issue also at other places. But if you cure
the problem, the issue at the other places will also go away :-)

When looking at the PDF documentation for Python 2.6.1, the issue4169 is
gone away. What has changed?

I think we can close 4169 now.
