No, the docstring is the first string after a function or class
definition, that is displayed interactively by "help name", and used
for documentation of the function or class.
http://docs.python.org/reference/com...on-definitions
Footnotes [3] & [4]

The proper name for three-quoted strings is triple-quoted string:
http://docs.python.org/reference/lex...lysis.html#id7

Often docstrings are expressed as three-quoted strings, because they
want to exceed a single line.
Glenn,
thanks for the clarification,
English is not my first language, nor is Python ;-)
I already updated the webpage.

cheers,
Stef
