In gettext-tools/doc/gettext.texi:

__expand("[new] replaces [old]", old => $oldvalue, new => $newvalue)

should read:

__x("{new} replaces {old}", old => $oldvalue, new => $newvalue)

That are two changes: The function is __x() not __expand(), and the interpolation uses {curly} braces, not [square] brackets.
