dec/hex comparison after 6th paragraph

This area is listing a comparison, in paired lines, of hex numbers and their decimal equivalents. However in the 1st line of the 1st pair, which is the hex numbers, for some reason the last entry - which should be '10' is missing, over the decimal number 16. Instead, 10 appears as the first hex value in the next pair of lines, as the equivalent of decimal 17. From there on, the pairs of equivalent numbers are off by 1.

first paragraph

You said in the preceding paragraph that you were making one small change to the example by adding a line-height to the styles for the BIG element (which you did). However, you made a second change; you changed the P line-height from 23pt (see top of page 98) to 27pt. As it is now, it incorrectly reads: P {font-size: 18pt; line-height: 27pt;} and in the HTML it also says "...and the 'line-height' for this paragraph is 27pt..." But the orignal reads: P {font-size: 18pt; line-height: 23pt;}. Ditto for the HTML. A mention that the overall line-height is different should be added.
