Cool, sorry for not noticing (where are uppdates to errata notified?).
However there is one more thing that maybe should be mentioned in the
'empty-cells' property and that is how outlines should be affected by the
value of 'empty-cells'. I'm not sure if it's actually needed other then for
clarification since section 17.5.1 now states that empty cells should be
hidden when 'empty-cells' are set to 'hide' which could include hiding
