Figure 4-13

Figure 4-13 depicts a truly awful layout example that was corrected by the site's authors in very early 2011. Recommend referencing this as "historical" or "legacy" since it bears minimal resemblance to today's site.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Thank you for the suggestion, we will make this adjustment to the caption.

3rd paragraph

The text says: Consider what the color dialog box in Figure 4-51 would look like if you placed the OK and Cancel buttons to the left edge instead of the right edge.

But the picture in Figure 4-51 is different. It's not the color dialog box, it's a screen from Windows 7 control panel.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Remove the word "color" from the phrase "color dialog box." That is all!
