Page 22
Top on this page, for 4 0 obj

At top on p.22, for "4 0 obj", you wrote "/Count 3". But there are only 2 "page" in this "4 0 obj" ("5 0 R" and "6 0 R"). Should it be "/Count 2"?

At line 4 in the paragraph below Figure 1-7, you wrote
"...along with a count of the leaf nodes in this branch of the tree....."
In Example 1-16 (p.21), you wrote "/Count 3".
But "2 0 obj" has 7 "page" (leaf nodes), if "2 0 obj" is the root of the page tree in Figure 1-7. I would like to know:

the value of the key /Count is:

-the number of (immediate) kids (include "pages" and "page") of a "pages"? (If it is this case, it should be /Count 3 for "2 0 obj" and /Count 2 for 4 0 obj)

-or the total number of (immediate or descendant) "page" (leaf node) of a "pages"? (If it is this case, it should be /Count 7 for "2 0 obj" and /Count 2 for 4 0 obj)

Note from the Author or Editor:
Yes, it should - good catch, thanks!!
