 Nice catch! IMHO it is probably better to redirect the reader directly
 to files installed as part as the misc.tgz installation set.
 While here I have also updated the suggested documentation according the
 ones installed in /usr/share/doc, a patch to address that for htdocs is
 available in:

 Mmh, this is nowdays available in
 `/usr/share/doc/usd/vi/vitut.{ps.gz,txt}'. I guess that maybe the
 HTML version just messed up the `^' character. The one in the `.txt'
 seems okay while the one in `.ps.gz' is a bit more confusing but seems
 documented in `2.1 Scrolling and paging' in order to clarify the `^' in
 e.g. [^str] or `^' (to go to the first non-white on line) and ^<char>
 (e.g. ^W to erase a word during an insert) used as a `Control + <char>'
 So, I would prefer to leave them as-is.
 I will wait several days and if there will be no feedback I will commit
 the proposed patch to htdocs.
 Thank you Ray for the PR!
