Possible error in GREL documentation for cell reference

At the top of the GREL documentation ('Syntax' section) is a table that shows:

FirstName.cells | Access the cell in the column named “FirstName” of the current row

but I don't think this works. Doesn't it need to be cells.FirstName ?

yeap. or if it's spaced. cells["First Name"]
See Expressions | OpenRefine

Yes the table has that (spaced) example.

So it is an error, yes? I'll submit to the github issues.
