Should this sentence start with
The ò§èopen-action specò§é is the action ôó¦
Certainly yes. Well, it could be yet better written than that, but
that's the basic correction. I will fix the manual.
I.e., if the TeX source says
\pdfcatalog /PageMode openaction /UseOutlines
the semantic open action written into the PDF file will be /UseOutlines. Etc.
(At least, I assume so -- I can't say I've actually tried it.)
The "openaction" literal is just a literal, as I'm sure you figured
all along :).
I see a variety of other fixes and improvements, e.g., the current text
refers to Table 4, but now the list of actions is Table 5 (in the
current manual, maybe not in the old version you're looking at).
P.S. How goes literac and jsbox?
