With reference to page 6, see below:
"#b" appears immediately after the body opening tag. Therefore, as I understand the DOM, "#b" is a child of the body element, not the html element, of which the body element is a child.

"#c" appears between the opening and closing div tags, so it is a child of the div element, not the body element.

Please explain. Thanks.

Re: Can't find Errata page, issues with 1.2.1
Hi Charles,

The confusion comes from the fact that this is a not-final manuscript. The # letters are just mark indicating where the code note refers to. So, note #b refers to <body>.

Just imagine that #a is one end of the arrow and the other #a is the other end of the arrow with the code note on one end and the line of code on the other end.

Does that make sense?

Yes, that clears it up. I'm glad you will be revisiting this before publication with the goal of clarifying matters.

Thanks.

Just me, but I don't think (#a) works in 1.2.1 "d3ia.html".
Perhaps:

<script src="http://d3js.org/d3.v3.min.js"></script>

Re: Can't find Errata page, issues with 1.2.1 (Section 1.5 too)
Found same issue with code from Section 1.5.
Perhaps:
