hi,

The manual states that the width and alignment values can be
combined. The example uses a combination of <l> and <10>. The `l' is
not the best way to demonstrate this, as it looks like a `1'. The
scanning reader may see <110> instead of <l10>. If the manual reads
<r10>, the example is a lot more valuable. Also, in order to not rely
on an example only, the text `may also combine alignment and field
width' will be better if it reads `may also combine alignment and
field width as a single multi letter specification within pointy
brackets' 

It's all in doc/org.texi line 2247.

Done.

I don't find this necessary, the sentence is too heavy like this.

Thanks,
