2nd paragraph

From the text on the page 255 (and the example on page 257) seems that the GetInitializer(Type serviceType) is used to retrieve the type of initializer that is returned by the GetInitializer (LogicalMethodInfo methodInfo, SoapExtensionAttribute attribute). Actually it's not right. The GetInitializer(Type serviceType) is used if the SOAP extension is configured using a configuration file - not using an attribute of Web method. If this is right the GetInitializer(Type serviceType) method (page 257) can't return type of filename. AUTHOR: This is correct. The upshot is that though the example works as written, if you tried to apply the SOAP extension using a confi- guration file attribute, it would not work (due to this error).
