In section 6.1.3 Format String Syntax, some examples have incorrect or poorly worded comments:


"Harold's a clever {0!s}"        # Calls str() on the argument first
"Bring out the holy {name!r}"    # Calls repr() on the argument first
"More {!a}"                      # Calls ascii() on the argument first

Suggested Changes:

"Harold's a clever {0!s}"        # Calls str() on first positional argument
"Bring out the holy {name!r}"    # Calls repr() on the named argument 'name'
"More {!a}"                      # Calls ascii() on first positional argument (v. 3.1 and later)
