ReproducibleScript:
In the description of mark gravity in the text widget man page,
the following line:
"position will appear to the right of the mark. The gravity"
should be:
"position will appear to the *left* of the mark. The gravity"

Well, that's a spot of the code that definitely needs reading
twice to understand it. I've changed it to:

If a mark has left gravity, then the mark is treated as if it
were attached to the character on its left, so the mark will
remain to the left of any text inserted at the mark position.
If the mark has right gravity, new text inserted at the mark
position will appear to the left of the mark (so that the mark
remains rightmost). The gravity for a mark defaults to \fBright\fR.
