As I originally posted in the Users forum:
At page: http://help.libreoffice.org/Calc/Array_Functions there are errors
in the display of the sample arrays. The text of the example is correct
but the error in the example array makes the "explanation" less
effective... putting it kindly.
The top row of each array should have its content shifted right by one
cell. The top-leftmost cell in the example should be empty. The top row
and left column are intending to display, respectively, the column numbers
and row numbers.
The errors are the same for all the example arrays and also in at least
several of the languages.
The login to 'help.libreoffice.org' is apparently different than
'www.libreoffice.og'. I don't want to create so many different
credentials. How, then, to report this error? If not sufficiently done

The following thread further documents the issue and encourages me to post here to Bugzilla:
Hi Korrawit, Davide
Sorry for the late answer
Korrawit - thank you for the forward!
David - the best for all the bug reports is the Bugzilla:
Korrawit is right that it is an issue with the tooling that converts the
help to the wiki syntax. I'll have a look; unfortunately cannot have a
look just immediately But incidentally - if you have experience
with Python, you may improve it yourself, and send a patch; if you send
me a fix, I can re-run the conversion of those pages immediately.
The sources are here:

Tables are handled between line numbers 475 and 526. If you are
interested, and have more questions, please just ask, or reach me on the
IRC: irc.freenode.net, channel #libreofffice-dev, nick 'kendy'.
Thank you a lot,

I'm taking a look at this.

The problem is that the wikiconv2.py script does not handle empty table cells. It expects something to be in the table cell: a paragraph, a section etc.
There are 146 empty table cells in help (<tablecell></tablecell>). Either the script should be fixed, or these 146 empty cells should be filled with something (a space character for example).

A space character isn't enough, because the script expects some child element.
Currently I'm trying to place a check whether the tablecell element is empty, but no success yet.
