I find it hard to maintain bug reports which are just long lists of things that need to be fixed. It is easier if each problem has its own bug report so it is clear when the conditions have been met that enable the bug to be closed.

Thanks for the review.
Maybe this report can stay open, as a central place for missing doc strings: there are many more undocumented but functional properties (see for example the main patch properties).

Made a few tweaks and pushed it here http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/c16e46aa3553.

I see that Matlab has removed "demi" and "light" from the text property "fontweight". I will file a different report abouth that.

I added a few doc strings to genpropdoc.m in the attached patch.

Since I am not native english, it would need a reread before pushing to stable. Thanks in advance.
