10th edition corrigenda

Oxford gives the erratum (in PDF) for the 10th edition manual here [link]; it was last updated in November 2008.

Of course, it could use another update. Or two. Compare the hyphenated ranges in the example figure on page 107 with those given in the figure on 115. Ah-ha! Does a range hyphen take space on both sides or not?

Despite being incomplete, the erratum's still a solid hour of fun for the happy few nerdy enough to track down each error on the list, discovering the ones that got away from our own and Oxford's eyes.
