This is a documentation "bug".

I did this

man curl

In section '--etag-compare':

'OMPARISON: There are 2 types of comparison or ETags, Weak and Strong. This option expects, and uses a strong comparison.'

should be (add the missing leading 'C' and fix punctuation):

'COMPARISON: There are 2 types of comparison or ETags: Weak and Strong. This option expects and uses a strong comparison.'

In section '--etag-save':

'A server can send a week ETag'
should be (week->weak)
'A server can send a weak ETag'.

'It an ETag wasn't send by the server or it cannot be parsed, and empty file is created.'
should be (send->sent, and->an)
'If an ETag wasn't sent by the server or it cannot be parsed, an empty file is created.'
