It was a bit later than that, actually.  The original text was delivered
by 17 July (engraved on my heart, that date!).  This meant that the 30
June updates to XML-Lang and XLL are reflected in the book - I had to do
major work on the linking chapter to achieve this!

We are putting an errata list onto the book's accompanying web site.
However, it's unlikely that I will have time to track all changes to the
XML spec.  This is just a list of things that I got wrong (or to be
precise, the things I got wrong which Tim didn't spot!).

Let me know of any actual errors and I will happily post them to the web
