Fix documentation of delsel and of killing text

* doc/emacs/killing.texi (Appending Kills): Make sure the text
with 2 spaces is not broken between 2 lines.
* doc/emacs/mark.texi (Using Region): Remove the sentence about
delsel mode that describes behavior which exists even without
delsel mode turned on.  Suggested by Petteri Hintsanen
<petterih@iki.fi> in emacs-manual-bugs@gnu.org.

* lisp/delsel.el (delete-selection-mode): Doc fix.
