Description:
This documentation has a typo in the code fragment:
IN:  http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/CREATE_TABLE.html
====
As of MySQL 3.23, you can create one table from another by adding a SELECT statement at the end of the CREATE TABLE statement: 

CREATE TABLE new_tbl SELECT FROM orig_tbl;
====
The fragment should read:
CREATE TABLE new_tbl SELECT * FROM orig_tbl;

How to repeat:
N/A.  However to verify:

mysql> CREATE TABLE list2 SELECT FROM lists;
ERROR 1064: You have an error in your SQL syntax near 'FROM lists' at line 1
mysql> CREATE TABLE list2 SELECT * FROM lists;
Query OK, 429 rows affected (0.01 sec)
Records: 429  Duplicates: 0  Warnings: 0

Suggested fix:
Fix the code snippet in docs
