      Description

      The documentation contains a Math and Trig page. Information about the trig functions are wrong.

      asin(x), acos(x), atan(x): text: "Inverse sine/cosine/tangent of angle x in radians". But, of course, an inverse function produces radians as output, and takes the sin/cos/tan value as input. This, the value "x" is not an angle in radians, it is the sin/cos/tan value to be inverted.

      SINH(), COSH(), TANH(): these each take an input, but the placeholder "x" is not shown, incorrectly suggesting that they take no argument.

      List of functions: The list of non-trig functions earlier on the page is in the form of a table. For symmetry, the list of trig functions should also be a table, not a bulleted list.
