http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/join.html and http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/index-hints.html have unbalanced parentheses and brackets in the syntax section shown here:

tbl_name [[AS] alias] [index_hint)]  <== extra )

    USE {INDEX|KEY} [FOR JOIN] (index_list)]     <== extra ]
  | IGNORE {INDEX|KEY} [FOR JOIN] (index_list)]  <== extra ]
  | FORCE {INDEX|KEY} [FOR JOIN] (index_list)]   <== extra ]
