Description

Help file says
"ArgumentOutOfRangeException
 The read time-out value is less than or equal to zero and not equal to InfiniteTimeout. "

But from the MetaData link
"System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException:
        //     The read time-out value is less than zero and not equal to System.IO.Ports.SerialPort.InfiniteTimeout."

MetaData is correct, zero(0) is accepted as a valid value.

Thanks for the feedback; you're absolutely correct and I'll make the change for a future release of the documentation.
