"The answer is this: although many people are still learning to produce 0.91, 0.91, et al, we will not." should be: "The answer is this: although many people are still learning to produce 0.91, 0.92, et al, we will not." Note the second 0.91 has been changed to 0.92. Also notice that in the book, the line breaks after the second "0."

However, this element can also take subelements of its own from the Dublin Core modules, mod_dublincore and mod_DCTerms. We'll see these modules soon, but the first example in the next section will give you an idea. Do you see how the namespaces system works? The first example shows a feed using only the mod_annotation system. We've added one additional namespace and used the element correctly. In the second example, we want to use another module to describe something in terms that the currently available elements can't. So we decide upon mod_dublincore, add in the namespace declaration, and go ahead. Also notice that in the first example, annotate is a one-line element, with a closing />, whereas in the second example, annotate contains the mod_dublincore elements before closing. This means that the mod_dublincore elements ref ....
