Class shorthands

The list of the names of the shorthands ("digit, word character, and space character classes") HAVE BEEN CHANGED so it is in the same order as the list of the shorthands ("w, d, s"). Thus, the first sentence NOW READS: "Commonly provided shorthands for word character, digit, and space charcter classes."
