-Add sentence: A \verb|\multicolumn| normally adds a horizontal space

-entry, even if the last uneffected column template part ended in an
-\texttt{@}-expression (for example, when spanning the last two columns

+Insert the following text right after ``\texttt{l}, and \texttt{r}.''
+If the part of the environment's \emph{cols} argument being replaced
+immediately follows an \texttt{@} expression, then the \emph{item}
+will be preceded by a normal intercolumn space unless the
+\verb|\multicolumn| command's \emph{col} argument begins with an
+\texttt{@} expression.  In particular, beginning the \emph{col}
+argument with \verb|@{}| will suppress that space.
