Section: 3.1.2. Strings

There is a typo in this block
In addition to indexing, slicing is also supported. While indexing is used
to obtain individual characters, slicing allows you to obtain substring:

>>> word[0:2]  # characters from position 0 (included) to 2 (excluded)
>>> word[2:5]  # characters from position 2 (included) to 4 (excluded)
The comment on the 2nd last line should read
# characters from position 2 (included) to 5 (excluded)
