Indeed; serves me right for not looking closely; I think I was confused by the
second sentence in the paragraph following the example: "Creates or replaces
the file MANIFEST.MF. Note that the Built-By attribute will take the value of
the Ant property ${}. The same is true for the ${version} and ${TODAY}

Thanks for clearing that up Stefan.
