documentation bug: s|t

    The HTML version of the set union documentation
    seems fine
    http://python.active-venture.com/lib/set-objects.html

    But the PDF version appears to have an mdash instead
    of a vertical bar.

    I deduce that this is a LaTeX translation that ignore's
    Knuth's claim that we should not typeset | outside of
    math mode (or even want to!), so I'm guessing
    the same problem occurs elsewhere in the documentation.
    The translation needs to be $|$ instead of just |.

    How to report?

    Thanks,
    Alan Isaac

    Hi Alan,

    I've successfully reported (and had fixed :) a documentation bug by
    following the link from the "About the Python Documentation" section of
    the docs to the sourceforge bugtracker at
    <http://sourceforge.net/bugs/?group_id=5470>.

    Best,

    Brian vdB
