Patches fixing what I and my spell checker found to be certainly typos.

I'll commit these.

comment:3 Changed 9 years ago by boris

The patch does not include all corrections. What I found missing were

manifestfile

patten matching

fromIntegerfunction

and the mistakes when one word is written twice.

comment:4 Changed 9 years ago by daniel.is.fischer

Thanks. I've definitely fixed the "patten matching" and (some of?) the doubled words now. I think the manifestfile and the fromIntegerfunction come from there not having been a space after markup around fromInteger and manifest, I've added a space after the manifest markup at the place where I think it appears, I've done that for fromInteger yesterday already.

If you find any more, it'd be helpful to include more context to make it easier to locate the errors.
