The description reads:

Returns a string with contents according to the format string str. There are three special sequences: $' for the characters before a match, $' for the characters after the match, and $& for the matched characters.

Notice that $' occurs twice, both for the "before" and "after" cases. I'm unfamiliar with these operators, but this seems highly unlikely to be correct as written.

Thanks, @WraithGlade! This appears to be an issue with the font. These should be "acute"/"grave" accents ` and ´.
