I fixed the incorrect documentation in op-kw-docs in this cset (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/475b4cd1b789).  Closing report.

Hmmm, got fooled myself :-(

Attempt #2: the tags.

If this doesn't come through, read here:

Hint:
use the ....   tags to avoid * and _ being interpreted as <bold on/off> and <italics on/off>

>>  help .**

-- Operator: .*
     Element by element power operator.  If several complex results are
     possible, returns the one with smallest non-negative argument
     (angle).  Use 'realpow', 'realsqrt', 'cbrt', or 'nthroot' if a real
     result is preferred.

     See also: **, ^, .^, power, realpow, realsqrt, cbrt, nthroot.

The first line should be ".**", not ".*". The doc-string should be

>>  help .**

-- Operator: .**
     Element by element power operator.  If several complex results are
     possible, returns the one with smallest non-negative argument
     (angle).  Use 'realpow', 'realsqrt', 'cbrt', or 'nthroot' if a real
     result is preferred.

     See also: **, ^, .^, power, realpow, realsqrt, cbrt, nthroot.
