7. Name the file rt_afterburner2-custom.css.

7. Name the file rt_afterburner2-customs.css.
File name is invalid.

I do have to retype the name. I did choose the name leaving out the extension .css
That works fine:
7. Name the file rt_afterburner2-customs.

Extension .css is added by Joomla in the Template manager.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Page 67 list item #7 states "Name the file rt_afterburner2-custom.css." Please change to "Name the file rt_afterburner2-custom." (We're removing the .css from the list item.)

Note from the Author or Editor:
Under the ==== Features Tab heading, change:

item #22 on the list at top of page

The sentence for number 22 reads:
"Move or restore your 3.x test site to the root of your hosting to make the new 3.5 site your live site."

3.5 should say 3.x.

So the list item would now read:
"Move or restore your 3.x test site to the root of your hosting to make the new 3.x site your live site."

Thanks.
