I've fixed a usage example for String#include? that was not valid Ruby. This is my first attempt at submitting an issue or patch for Ruby, so please pardon any errors. Thank you!

?h is actually valid Ruby - it's shorthand for "h".

irb(main):001:0> "hello".include? ?h
=> true

Thanks, Charlie. While the shorthand is valid, the actual problem is that the question mark does not appear when viewing the generated documentation (screenshot: http://cl.ly/Pmx1). Is there a way to escape that character so it appears and makes the rendered docs valid?

@mattonrails this bug was actually fixed just recently in rdoc, see https://github.com/rdoc/rdoc/issues/220

@zzak even better; thanks for the heads-up :)
