"Tip" at the top of the page, line 3.

The tip asserts that exporting styles from an internal style sheet to an external one is "described on page 115", but page 115 says nothing about that export operation. Perhaps the reference should be to page 324, which explains how to move styles between two style sheets, including the case in which the source style sheet is internal.

Note from the Author or Editor:
change "described on page 115" to "described on page 326"

For the line, "At this point, the dialog box should look like Figure 25-35" This dialog box Figure is missing. It needs to be created and referenced by a new number, Figure 25-36. The current Figure's 25-36 and 25-37 should be incremented by one.

Step 19 and Figure 25-37

References to Fig 25-37 should be changed to Fig 25-38. Also, the image show in Figure 25-37 does not match the discussion in Step 19. The image should be of the completed page as discussed in this section.

Fremove figure 25-37 (it's incorrect) and in step 19, first paragraph of text remove "as shown in Figure 25-37"
