Status report and correction...

So far, I have gotten zero response on this.  Does no one know of any 1.0 
errata?  I.e., you haven't even marked up your paper copy with typo 
corrections, etc?

Dave, would CGMO TC minutes contain any references to such stuff?  Could 
you either check them, or divide 'em up and delegate to other TC/WG members?

A correction to my earlier message is below embedded...

The designation-sequence-tail glitch was actually about type S (graphical 
text), not type SF.  It was the 1.0 one-byte bug in how the d-s-t is 
specified in the Character Set List element.
