Explanation of the for statement in PHP reference manual includes a comentary notes on the special case that the second expression of the for statement was empty.  (e.g., "for(;;)".)  The last English sentense of the fourth paragraph reads: "This may not be as useless as you might think, since often you'd want to end the loop using a conditional break  statement instead of using the for truth expression." ?@This is somewhat tortuous sentense, but it says, in short, "This is useful."  In Japanese translation, however, the corresponding text says "This is less convenient than you think", making totally opposite and false statement.  The problematic part of the Japanese text that leads to the opposit meaning is "?v?????قǕ֗??ł͂Ȃ??????????܂???".

Reproduce code:
Access to

Expected result:
Replace the problematic part "?v?????قǕ֗??ł͂Ȃ??????????܂???" with "???S?҂??z?????????肸???ƕ֗??ł?".  (This rewriting used a word "???S??" (a novice) in place of "you" in "you might think", because it is better to avoid second person pronouns in Japanese sentense, and it makes sure that "you" in this context is assumed to be a no experienced programmer.)
