Grammar section: As near as I can tell, the alternatives for 

stringprefix    ::=  "r" | "u" | "ur" | "R" | "U" | "UR" | "Ur" | "uR"

should simply be augmented with

                     | "b" | "B" | "br" | "Br" | "bR" | "BR"

(on a separate line, indented as indicated).

Text section: At the end of the second paragraph, *replace*

"The two prefix characters may be combined; in this case, 'u' must appear before 'r'."


"A prefix of 'b' or 'B' is ignored in Python2; it indicates that the literal should become a bytes object in Python 3. A 'u' or 'b' prefix may be followed (but not preceded) by an 'r' prefix."
