Diagram - Figure 15-1 and 15-2

Based upon the data on page 103, it looks like the labels in the graph at the top of page 104 are wrong - "Response time" should be swapped with "Page Weight". The same is true of the diagram on page 105.

Note from the Author or Editor:
In Figure 15-1 and 15-2, the first two labels should be swapped (black line is Page weight, gray line is Response time).
