[New-bugs-announce] [issue26525] Documentation of ord(c) easy to misread

New submission from gladman:

It is very easy to misread the greek 'nu' used in the ord(c) documentation as ord('v') (i.e. an alphabetic 'v').  This can lead the reader to draw a wrong conclusion about the behaviour of the function. 

Would it not be better if this example used a greek letter that is less easy to misread in this way?  Or, perhaps, add extra text indicating that the greek letter 'nu' is being referenced?
