Code Example under the title "The Ui App Service"

The example on page 11 for the function hellowWorldUiApp() has a small error. The <Your Title> must be wrapped in single quotes to prevent an XML error. function helloWorldUiApp() { var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet(); //var app = UiApp.createApplication().setTitle(<Your Title>); //La syntaxe XML est incorrecte. (ligne 7, fichier "Code") var app = UiApp.createApplication().setTitle('<Your Title>'); //Corrected syntax app.add(app.createLabel('Hello World')); //TODO add your code here ss.show(app); }

Note from the Author or Editor:
The <Your Title> should show as user replaceable text

Same

In fact, the <> are not needed. Looking at page 13, if we want the code to match the image, we have to write the code like this: function helloWorldUiApp() { var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet(); var app = UiApp.createApplication().setTitle('_++Your Title++_'); app.add(app.createLabel('Hello World')); //TODO add your code here ss.show(app); }

Note from the Author or Editor:
_++Your Title++_ is not being converted by the Style template to user replaceable text.

Paragraph after image

"you might feel tht you have missed..." typo for the word: that 2nd typo: using "Web server" and "web server" in the same paragraph further down "...or figure out how to FTP to a web server somewhere..." then further down "...purchase and install a Web server..." I would probably never capitalize the word web.
