Second code example

The page number example includes an xml:id attribute: <span xml:id="page361" epub:type="pagenumber">361</span> But this should have been a regular id attribute: <span id="page361" epub:type="pagenumber">361</span>

code example at bottom of page and on next

The quoting on the type attribute on the <source> element is reversed: <source src="video/v001.webm" type="video/webm; codecs='vp8, vorbis'"/> This representation is not correct per RFC4281, and should be: <source src="video/v001.webm" type='video/webm; codecs="vp8, vorbis'/> Applies to both examples showing the source element.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Change as noted, both the example starting at the bottom of page 39 and the expanded version that follows a few paragraphs down on 40.

First code example

The prose states that the PLS file path is relative to the container root, but should have said relative to the package file. The href value in the example: <item href="EPUB/lexicon.pls" id="pls" media-type="application/pls+xml"/> should not have "EPUB/" in front of it (assuming the package document is in the same folder): <item href="lexicon.pls" id="pls" media-type="application/pls+xml"/> The next sentence should also be changed to switch "container root" to "package document": The href attribute defines the location of the file relative to the EPUB package document... These changes make the explanation of difference in the paragraph at the bottom unnecessary.
