[docs] [issue18403] Minor bug in The Python Tutorial

New submission from Xue Fuqiao:

In http://docs.python.org/3.3/tutorial/introduction.html#strings:

  In addition to indexing, slicing is also supported. While indexing is
  used to obtain individual characters, slicing allows you to obtain
  >>> word[0:2]  # characters from position 0 (included) to 2 (excluded)
  >>> word[2:5]  # characters from position 2 (included) to 4 (excluded)

I think the second comment should be "from position 2 to 5", not "to 4".
I'm a Python newbie, sorry if it's not a bug.
