2 fix spacing

Here is the text of Exercise:

2 a) Let $X$ be an ordered set. Show that the set of intervals

$[x, \left[x, \rightarrow[$ rightarrow\right[$(resp.$]\leftarrow, x]$\left]\leftarrow, x\right]$)

is a base of topology on X; $X$; this topology is called the right (resp. left) topology of $X$. In the right topology, any intersection of open sets is an open set, and the closure of {$x$} $\{x\}$ is the interval $]\leftarrow, x\left]\leftarrow, x\right]$.

The above one was from English edition. I translated French edition and found the same text.

Should not be $X$ a totally ordered set ? And is not that the set of intervals should be $]x, \left]x, \rightarrow[$ rightarrow\right[$in place of$[x, \left[x, \rightarrow[$rightarrow\right[$ ?

Is this an errata ?

# Possible errata in Nicolas Bourbaki's General Topology -I, Chapter 1 Exercise 2 ?
