[docs] [issue18789] XML Vunerability Table Unclear

Joe Tennies report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Joe Tennies:


This is an issue with the 2.x and 3.x documentation.


This section has a table with a bunch of Trues and Falses. This is a bit confusing, especially for something that is trying to describe security concerns. After looking at the table, I'm pretty sure that True means vunerable (only due to the (1), (2), & (3) comments), but it's not clear. All that is needed is a heading stating "Vunerable", or change the "True" to "Vunerable" and "False" to "Not Vunerable" (probably V and NV w/ a legend).
