What is described is the opposite of what is shown. The line being talked about is the 5th line of code (0 0 255) and with reference to that it is stated "What follows, then, for the ASCII-formatted data, is a set of RGB values in RGB order, with each value separated by a space." (pwd~> so far so good) "In this example each color is separated by a carriage return, but they could all be on the same line." The *are* listed on the same line, separated by spaces.

Note from the Author or Editor:
In this example each color is separated by a space, but they could have been separated by a line break.

code example 7-5 (continued)

After the closing text label shouldn't there be a <desc></desc>?

Note from the Author or Editor:
This was a minor technical error, but not the one referenced in the errata. All of the desc elements should be removed from this example, and consolidated into one desc element at the beginning. Though repeated use of the desc element does not generate an error, only one desc element should be used within an SVG container. Example at http://realtech.burningbird.net/ptwexamples/ch07-05.svg shows correction.

Bottom of the page under the section: "Other Tools and Utilities"

The web page address for the (good/huge) list of web design tools posted by the University of Minnesota Duluth has changed or was listed improperly. The correct link is below. There is just one small part that is not correct. In case this changes again in the future, you can also go to the University's website and search for "web design tools". http://www.d.umn.edu/itss/support/Training/Online/webdesign/tools.html

Note from the Author or Editor:
The URL for the University of Minnesota tool page, at the bottom of page 391, should be changed to http://www.d.umn.edu/itss/support/Training/Online/webdesign/tools.html

1st paragraph of new section

The last sentence is repeted twice: "Opacity can be a great way to indicate whether somethingis applicable-whether a button is active or a link can be clicked, for example" Both sentences say the same thing, even though worded differently. I though it was time to go to bed when thought I kept skipping lines or was having some sort of dejavu :)

Note from the Author or Editor:
Remove second redundant sentence
