    arch-handbook: Fix a few nits
    A couple of typos were noticed during the conversion to one sentence per line, and have now been corrected.
    While here, move a manual page reference into the same line as the sentence that refers to it.

 So CSM is supported (with both GPT and MBR partitioning support) and UEFI booting (GPT is totally supported, MBR is mostly supported).
 It also supports loading files from ext2fs, MSDOS, UFS and ZFS.
 FreeBSD also supports the boot environment feature of ZFS which allows the HOST OS to communicate details about what to boot that go beyond a simple partition as was possible in the past.

 Then `init386()` prepares the Global Descriptors Table (GDT).
 Every task on an x86 is running in its own virtual address space, and this space is addressed by a segment:offset pair.
 Say, for instance, the current instruction to be executed by the processor lies at CS:EIP, then the linear virtual address for that instruction would be "the virtual address of code segment CS" + EIP.
-For convenience, segments begin at virtual address 0 and end at a 4Gb boundary.
+For convenience, segments begin at virtual address 0 and end at a 4GB boundary.
 Therefore, the instruction's linear virtual address for this example would just be the value of EIP.
 Segment registers such as CS, DS etc are the selectors, i.e., indexes, into GDT (to be more precise, an index is not a selector itself, but the INDEX field of a selector).
 FreeBSD's GDT holds descriptors for 15 selectors per CPU:
