diff man page typo

Donald Allen
In the 'Output Style' section, the diff man page says

"XXdYY        At line XX delete the line.  The value YY tells to which
                  line the change would bring file1 in line with file1."

I think what is meant is

"XXdYY        At line XX delete the line.  The value YY tells to which
                  line the change would bring file1 in line with file2."
