The manual for DrawVectorText() has errors with the phrase:

Wrong: "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy doc"
Right: "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"

Two small errors, but they totally change the meaning. :)

Nah, just lost in translation. Kind of funny in a way, but I'm a purist, and also don't want the manual's writers to be seen as wrong/dumb.

Yes, that's funny. :-)
However, it is not so much a question of meaning. The main point is that "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy doc" is no longer a pangram.

I often jumped over the lazy pb docs, because they are not always very clear (in content as well as in structure) and in the end you have to try things out anyway to know how things work exactly. :)
