### Description

As noticed by Florent Hivert here, the following two objects :

sage: w = Word('010120') sage: z = Word([0, 1, 0, 1, 2, 0])

have the same string representation :

sage: w word: 010120 sage: z word: 010120

but are not equal :

sage: w == z False

Indeed, w and z are defined on different alphabet :

sage: w[2] '0' sage: z[2] 0

Documentation about this should be improved.
