Feedback Documentation issues hopefully already addressed in Text Geometry

Hello,

  First, thank you for the Text Geometry description language, it is the most convenient way (short of CAD programs) of putting in geometry that I have yet found.

  I found this document on this text format, which was useful, but contains some errors:
http://geant4.cern.ch/collaboration/working_groups/geometry/docs/textgeom/textgeom.pdf

  Is this document current or is it an old version?

On page 14, the description of :VOLU_ASSEMBLY seems to be off in several ways. First, it does not seem that one puts in "Axis of division" "Number of divisions", "Division width" and "Offset"

Second, in :PLACE_ASSEMBLY, the "Copy number" isn't actually put in either.

The examples in the persistency dir do show correct usage: it is just the documentation which is off.

Was this document written in LaTeX? If so, I can probably fix these issues and contribute the fixed version back, if I'm given the document source.

Best,

--PeterM
