Address Notation section

The uncompressed IPv6 example address is shown as: 2001:DB8:0000:0000:0202:B3FF:FE1E:8329 but should be either: 2001:DB8x:0000:0000:0202:B3FF:FE1E:8329 (1) 2001:DBx8:0000:0000:0202:B3FF:FE1E:8329 (2) 2001:DxB8:0000:0000:0202:B3FF:FE1E:8329 (3) 2001:xDB8:0000:0000:0202:B3FF:FE1E:8329 (4) for some specific value of 'x'. The error is repeated in examples that follow. I'm guessing that 'x' was intended to be '0' and either case (1) or (4) was intended.

Address Notation

The 1st ipv6 address example in the book at page 37 (Address Notation)appears as "2001:DB8:0000:0000:0202:B3FF:FE1E:8329" which should have been as "2001:0db8:0000:0000:0202:B3FF:FE1E:8329" after removing the leading zeros it be as 2001:DB8:0:0:202:B3FF:FE1E:2389 (IN THE FIRST EXAMPLE ITSELF THE SECOND BLOCK APPEARS WITHOUT A LEADING ZERO) This would confuse a reader new to ipv6 & who is reading the book.

Graphic

The graphic for "Local IPV6 address" has too many bits in the prefix. It is "1111 1110" and should be "1111 110"

The term 'IPv6 Unicode address' should be 'IPv6 unicast address'

figure 3-6

the local IPv6 address shown as 1111 1110 should be 1111 1100 to translate to the Hex address prefix of FC00. The FE binary value was copied from the line above it appears.

Fouth paragraph, Last sentence

I am confused here. The Solicited Node Multicast address is generated from the MAC address but the last sentence implies that if the NIC has more IPV6 addresses there will be more Solicited node Multicast addresses. How can this be?
