Fixing three bugs in blackbody.docbook:

73930: Misspelled "Wien's Law"

73931: Incomplete phrase:  actually, this phrase is not incomplete.  If
you look at the handbook, you'll see that the last part of the sentence
is an equation presented as an image in the document.  However, to make
the sentence a bit clearer, I have changed it to:  "For example, the
sun has an average temperature of 5800 K, so its wavelength of maximum
emission is given by:"

73932: Misspelled "Stefan-Boltzmann Law"
