Hi Osamu, dle added, since I may have confused French and English
grammatical rules here.
Anyway thanks for checking closely my tiny changes, I tried to fix typos
spotted while trying to keep the translation up to date, but I may
indeed have misunderstood some meanings.

Since were are referring to “[t]he following lines”, I guessed there
might be more than one rule for this target. Now that you ask, I must
admit that one rule can be written in many lines, so now I have a second
though, hopefully Justin may be able to enlighten us here.
