SF comments

(1) Summary. This feels a little brief; would it be worth adding something like the following text – “This function should be used in situations involving the selection of a subset from a set of objects (without repetition), with the selected objects arranged in a particular order.”.
(2) Arguments, 2nd bullet. Would it be simpler to write “Non-integer values of Count1 or Count2 are truncated to integers”?
(3) Additional details. I do not see the value of the middle part of the equations line – the right-hand part is the more easily understood and usual expression. Is it worth including a link to the relevant Wikipedia page?
(4) Examples. Suggest insert space before “(floor value…” in 2nd example. In examples 3 and 4, “Can not” would usually be written as “Cannot”. In 3rd example, insert “a” before “negative”. In 4th example, delete “number of”.
(5) Related LibreOffice functions. Delete link to PERMUT (this page!).
(6) General. Would it be worth stating that =PERMUT(0,0) returns 1?
