The markup contains "Bézier" but the image shows "bezier".

Note from the Author or Editor:

section "Circles"

The text says: "In the following image, the cx and cy values are set to (100,50)." but in the SVG markup we have: "<circle cx="150" cy="150"..." which agrees with the image.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The sentence "In the following image, the cx and cy values are set to (100,50)." needs to be changed to "In the following image, the cx and cy values are set to (150,150)."

The attributes cx, cy, rx and ry do not belong in the <g> element named "iris". They should be moved up 3 lines and put into the <ellipse> element.

The URL for the demo is incorrect. It should be: This concludes the first study. The referenced work (see the following image) is visible at http://www.dotuscomus.com/pergola/pergola_1.4.0/Examples/D3/multiD3.svg

Note from the Author or Editor:
The last link at bottom of page 234: http://www.dotuscomus.com/pergola/download/pergola_1.4.0/Examples/D3/multiD3.svg should change to: http://www.dotuscomus.com/pergola/pergola_1.4.0/Examples/D3/multiD3.svg (A fix was applied on the server to make the old link valid)

first sentence under "Viewing SVG" header

The line reads Start up any modern browser and point it at the website related to this book, http://cs.sru.edu/~svg.com. The link does not appear to exist. There appears to be a directory at http://cs.sru.edu/~svg but it indicates we don't have access to it. I did find a reference to http://srufaculty.sru.edu/david.dailey/svg/ which might be the information that was intended for the link, but it might not be as well.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The address in the book should be changed from http://cs.sru.edu/~svg.com to http://cs.sru.edu/~svg The directory referenced at that location is now visible.
