[docs] [issue10403] Use "member" consistently

New submission from Fred L. Drake, Jr. <fdrake at acm.org>:

Some portions of the documentation are using the term "member" to mean "data attribute".  This appears to be an aberration at this time, but occurrences should be identified and corrected, and "Documenting Python" updated to note correct usage.

Example use:

http://docs.python.org/dev/py3k/library/xmlrpc.client.html#fault-objects

http://docs.python.org/dev/py3k/library/urllib.request.html#basehandler-objects
(paragraph starting "The following members and methods should")

"Members and methods" should just be "attributes".
