Right, doc/manuals.defs (line 119) is the intended sentence.
I found that %s is substituted by fixed (not variable) text.
I don't know the reason.  If the ordinary text is *never*
changed in future, I can use the ordinary text instead of %s.
However, I think nobody can ensure it because it is under
control of CVS, i.e., everybody who has CVS account can
modify it.  I prefer to modify doc/manuals.defs not to use
multiple %s because it is not fatally needed.

May I modify doc/manuals.defs ?
