Follow-up Comment #4, patch #6829 (project pspp):

Under Hypothesis Testing:
>+or does the mean of a dataset significantly differ from a particular
I would write "whether" in place of "does", "differs" in place of "differ".

I notice that @footnote is not used in quite the right way in a few places. 
In particular, there should be no space between the text and the @footnote
command; otherwise there is a space between the text and the footnote marker
in the output, which is not the usual style.

>address@hidden example assumes that is it already proven that @var{B} is
>+not greater than @var{A}.}

Is this correct?  I would have guessed that it assumes that it assumes that
it is *not* already proven.  Regardless of whether I'm right about that, "is
it" => "it is".

As I continue to read through examples, I find myself wondering whether there
is value in inserting the @prompt{PSPP>} prefixes.  Since these appear on
(almost) every line, they don't really teach the reader very much, and they
make it more difficult to cut-and-paste from the manual.

Now I have to leave off before reading the Linear Regression section.
