history-search-backward documentation

Hi all,

The man page says:

history-search-backward
Search backward through the history for the string of characters between the start of the current line and the point. This is a
             non-incremental search.

That's not completely clear.. I think the following makes it much clearer:

history-search-backward
Search backward through the history for [ a line starting with ] the string of characters between the start of the current line and
             the point.  This is  a non-incremental search.


The same goes for history-search-forward.
