paragraph 6

Apparently, someone changed Preface to Introduction and failed to change the figure numbering to correspond: e.g., figures are given as P-1, P-2, etc. They should be I- 1, I-2, etc. for consistency. Additionally, in every other chapter, figures are indicated in the text by chapter number and figure (such as Figure 6-3); however, in the Intro, they're just Figure 1, etc. They really should be Figure I-1, etc.

Intelligent Searches

The book says: To force Mail to search for the entire phrase, put quotes around it. Hence, if you type "dog food" the program will look only for messages that contain that exact phrase. This doesn't work in 10.3. Mail ignores the quotes and returns every piece of mail with either "dog" or "food" in it.
