|120||Error in Table
p. 120 Table 6-1 The commands "wrox-prev-word" and "wrox-next-word" were changed during writing to "wrox-prev-whitespace-word" and "wrox-next-whitespace-word". They are incorrect in this table, and in several occurrences in the text in the following pages.
|121||Error in Text
"further below in this chapter"
"later in this chapter"
|121||Error in Figure
the line numbered "5" should indicate the end of the word "size", not between the 'z' and the 'e' as it does.
|200||Error in Text
"Add data in columns"
"Add characters in columns"
|205||Error in Figure
The description of Figure 10-8 should state "10 x 3 block selection".
|208||Error in Formatting
Last line: "block fill" and "block insert" are not commands, and should be in the regular paragraph font.
|220||Addition to Text
1st para: As well as mentioning quote-key, I should mention commands like keyin-space and keyin-enter here.
|223||Error in Text
"some CSV data"
(The data are not CSV in this example.)
|259||Error in Text
"several commercial tools"
"many commercial tools"
|262||Problem with Example
There is an example XML fragment shown here, but there is no discussion of what it illustrates! I left out a paragraph or two of explanation, and possibly some steps to follow.
The Alt+N key binding for keyin-buf-name requires the WROX emulation. Should be indicated as "(WROX: Alt+N)".
