     <p> The naming of the functions present in the library is usually
-      made of a prefix describing the object associated to the function
+      composed by a prefix describing the object associated to the function
       and a verb describing the action on that object.</p>
-    <p> For each first class object you will find apis
+    <p> For each first class object you will find APIs
       for the following actions:</p>
     <ul>
-      <li><b>Lookup</b>:...LookupByName,</li>
-      <li><b>Enumeration</b>:virConnectList... and virConnectNumOf...:
-        those are used to enumerate a set of object available to an given
-        hypervisor connection like:
-        <code class='docref'>virConnectListDomains</code>,

-      <li><b>Description</b>: ...GetInfo: those are generic accessor providing
