Hello Pádraig,
thanks for your email.

2012/1/16 Pádraig Brady <P at draigbrady.com>:
> In the language reference, there is no mention of the b prefix for string literals.
> http://docs.python.org/release/2.6/reference/lexical_analysis.html#literals
> This should be added to be consistent with the info here:
> http://docs.python.org/release/2.6/whatsnew/2.6.html#pep-3112-byte-literals
> The top link should also be adjusted for 2.6.[1-7]

2.6 release is in security-only bugfixes, so documentation updates are
no longer possible.
