D - array intialization - this can't be right

Looking at http://www.digitalmars.com/d/ctod.html#arrayinit2 :
The following all produce the same result:
    int a[3] = [ 3, 2, 0 ];
    int a[3] = [ 3, 2 ];              // unsupplied initializers are 0, just
like in C
    int a[3] = [ 3:0, 1:3, 2:2 ];
    int a[3] = [ 3:0, 1:3, 2 ];       // if not supplied, the index is the
previous
			              // one plus one.

It looks like initializing in done one based instead of zero based.  Is that
right?
Now I see that http://www.digitalmars.com/d/arrays.html has it being done
zero based:Static Initialization of Static Arrays	int[3] a = [ 1:2, 3 ];		//
a[0] = 0, a[1] = 2, a[2] = 3
That makes me feel better.

It's supposed to be 0 based, regardless of bugs in the documentation!
