Finally, the number of misprints suggests that the editing was not as good as it should have been.
Apparently some of this has to do with the software that the publisher used, which took the text from Dr. Hall's original document and put it into a new format. Some words were lost during this process.

Also, many of the lineage tables were rather dramatically altered when the publisher took them from Dr. Hall's draft to the final version. Dr. Hall was able to catch and correct most of these before final publication, but a few errors slipped through.
