Small Vista Bug

I just tried reporting a bug to Microsoft using this form, but I doubt anyone will read it.  If anyone is interested, here’s the bug I found and what I told Microsoft.

1) Go to the command line.
2) View the shutdown command’s documentation (type “shutdown /?”)

It will print the help document starting with:
Usage: shutdown [/i | /l | /s | /r | /g | /a | /p | /h | /e] [/f]
[/m \\computer][/t xxx][/d [p|u:]xx:yy [/c “comment”]]

There’s one small error where it shows the syntax for the /d option “[/d [p|u:]xx:yy”.  The colon (:) should be after the bracket (ie “[/d [p|u]:xx:yy”).  The current text is saying to only use the colon if you are specifying ‘u’ for unplanned, but it’s really required for both p and u.
