[docs] [issue37655] Set subset operator docs

Frank B report at bugs.python.org
Mon Jul 22 17:33:30 EDT 2019

New submission from Frank B <fbicknel at gmail.com>:

The docs say "Test whether the set is a proper subset of other" for both set < other and set > other built-in functions.

Is that a misprint? How could it be both?

For the <= and >= operators it properly reverses the order so one says:

Test whether every element in the set is in other.

and the other:

Test whether every element in other is in the set.
