C2 XPointer Error

From: Elliotte Rusty Harold <elharo@macfaq.com>

The  XPointer in the following example from appendix C2 is incorrect:

<?xml version='1.0'?>
  <document>
    <p>The relevant excerpt is:</p>
    <quotation>
      <xinclude:include xmlns:xinclude="http://www.w3.org/1999/XML/xinclude"
         href="source.xml#xpointer(string-range(chapter/p[1],'Sentence
2') to 
                                   string-range(chapter/p[2]/i,'3.',0,11))"/>
    </quotation>
  </document>

The to keyword is from an old working draft of XPointer. I think it
should now be replaced by range-to like this:

<?xml version='1.0'?>
  <document>
    <p>The relevant excerpt is:</p>
    <quotation>
      <xinclude:include xmlns:xinclude="http://www.w3.org/1999/XML/xinclude"
         href="source.xml#xpointer(string-range(chapter/p[1],'Sentence
2')/range-to (string-range(chapter/p[2]/i,'3.',0,11)))"/>
    </quotation>
  </document>
