1. For C-c C-k it says: "With argument, delete the text."
It should say "With a prefix argument, delete the text."
2. It says:
"However, deletion of rectangles can be useful in Picture mode, so these
commands delete the rectangle if given a numeric argument.  `C-c C-k'
either with or without a numeric argument..."
That should say "if given a prefix argument...with or without a prefix
argument".  The prefix argument need not be numeric - plain `C-u' works
FWIW, I've noticed this same mistake in other places in the manuals (and
have reported it when I noticed).  You might want to check for this
problem generally.  Someone writing some parts of the manual seems to be
confused about prefix arguments.
