Fix typos in /Documentation : 'U-Z'

This patch fixes typos in various Documentation txts. The patch addresses some
+words starting with the letters 'U-Z'.

Looks like I made it through the alphabet...just in time to start over again
+too!  Maybe I can fit more profound fixes into the next round...?  Time will
+tell. :)
