Maybe - I don't know what that pgweb data would be.

There are really two issues:

  1. Apply changes I suggested (and attached earlier) to
the documentation text to make code examples use a
single table instead of two different ones.  I chose
apod because I knew apod from tsearch2.  In the patch
there are also some confusing inconsistencies removed,
for instance column  'textsearch_indexable_col' is in a
later code example used as column 'textsearch'.

  2. Whether or not to include some actual table data (be
it apod or pgweb). This is less important as far as I am
