minor things (again)

Hi

1) would $[\ , ,]$ have better spacing?

2) $[ , , ]$ is anti-commutative not anti-associative. Further this
term should not be emphasized as this entry does not define this
term. (It is currently undefined on PM.)

3) $\displaystyle [a_1,a_2,a_3]=\operatorname{sgn}(\pi)[a_{\pi(1)},b_{\pi(2)},a_{\pi(3)}],$

4) also mention that sgn is the sign of \pi:

I don't think you need to take out the
properties from this entry. After all, the
properties are about the associator. THerefore,
it would seem logical to have them (also) here.

The problem is that the anti-commutative properties are really meant for alternative algebras. They are not general properties of the associator. I happened to put them in the wrong place.
