Page viii

I did notice on page viii in the Preface the last sentence should be omitted. It is repeated on the next page in the correct place. "Browser prefixes are most common in CSS. We urge you to read the introduction to Chapter 2 to get a full explanation of how browser prefixes are implemented in CSS."

Code

There are three minor issues on this page: * ctx is never used and should be removed for clarity * i is incremented in both of the for loops, and the body of both for loops also add 10 to it. It shouldn't be modifying i in both places as it's unlikely to be the desired behaviour. * myContent.fill() should be myContext.fill()

Note from the Author or Editor:
only one part of this is accurate. The last line, * myContent.fill() should be myContext.fill()
