Typo in WritingFirstApp/Part1/CreatingModels, polls/ should read maxlength not max_length

Reported by: riazrizvi@… Owned by: nobody

using Django 0.96.1 on WindowsXP/Python24/Mysql50, in tutorial WritingFirstApp/PartOne/CreatingModels, I get an error if I follow these instructions

These concepts are represented by simple Python classes. Edit the polls/ file so it looks like this:
from django.db import models
class Poll(models.Model):
    question = models.CharField(max_length=200)
    pub_date = models.DateTimeField('date published')

class Choice(models.Model):
    poll = models.ForeignKey(Poll)
    choice = models.CharField(max_length=200)
    votes = models.IntegerField()

I get an error when I run

 python sql polls

unless I remove the underscore from the CharFields of Poll and Choice models to read

... .CharField(maxlength=200)

Those instructions are for trunk, which does use the underscore, there are seperate docs for .96.
