Description:
------------

From manual page: http://www.php.net/language.oop5.visibility

This sentence does not seem to be correct:
"Members declared protected can be accessed only within the class itself and by inherited classes."
I believe what the author meant is:
"Members declared protected can be accessed only within the class itself and by inheriting classes."

In other words: if class C extends class B which extends class A, then a protected member of B can be accessed by C. With the current text "inherited classes" suggest that class A can access protected members of B.

This bug has been fixed in the documentation's XML sources. Since the
online and downloadable versions of the documentation need some time
to get updated, we would like to ask you to be a bit patient.

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make our documentation better.
