Oh, I see now. The <screen> sections above and below that one were
including output, and I was just expecting the same here.

One way to fix would be to include shell prompts and outputs for both
commands (patch Option 1, attached).  Or, if we don't want to bother
including output, as the section does now, maybe we could at least
include the shell prompts and mention that output is excluded (patch
Option 2).

I've also attached an unrelated typofix I noticed for the same page.
