Summary: String formatting operator % badly documented

Initial Comment:
Hello everyone!

The % operator works with strings, but this is hard to
find in the documentation (Library Reference 2.2.6.2).

Really bad is, that an operator should be documented in
the Language Reference, where it isn't.

Lang-Ref "5.6 Binary arithmetic operations" is labeled
wrong, as it also describes the non-arithmetic
operations of + and * but seems to know nothing about %
under that aspect...
It is actually indirectly saying that there is no
further non-arithmetic operation - but there is: %.
