      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      The "Method Comments Algorithm" section of https://docs.oracle.com/en/java/javase/14/docs/specs/javadoc/doc-comment-spec.html#method-comment-inheritance appears to contain a mistake:
      > Look in each directly implemented (or extended) interface in the order they appear following the word implements (or extends) in the method declaration.

      It should probably be
      > following the word implements (or extends) in the **type** declaration
