> The "SQL Syntax" topic in the Getting Started guide (http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.10/getstart/rgsdocs10012.html)
does not describe the curly braces ("{ }") as they are actually used in syntax statements,
where they actually group required items, normally so choices can be separated by vertical
bars ("|"). This should be corrected.
> I also plan to adopt the suggestion made in DERBY-6121 that the topic be added to the
Reference Manual, where syntax is most used. 
> Does anything else in the topic need fixing? I am confused by the statement that the
asterisk "has a special meaning in some SQL statements." What special meaning can it have
other than marking repeatable items?
