Figure 13-22

Figure 13-22 is incorrect. It has been replaced with the figure found here - http://examples.oreilly.com/9780596008420/Missing_Figure_13-22.jpeg the new caption text is: "With an option field, you can collect additional information about the type of product the buyer wants. This is useful if you offer the same item in multiple colors or sizes. To create an option field, you choose the type of control you'll use (a drop-down menu or text box). For a drop-down menu, you then supply the allowed options from which the buyer can choose. PayPal lets you create two option fields."
