Default P308 error for script.text erroneous assignment in catch block

I think code doesn't need to be quoted in either the try or catch blocks. (the greyed out code shown prior to loadScriptString method)
It's a variable after all...

P453 also has an error : change whereas setting to whereas getting!

P456 has extremely poorly worded bullet point. 'This includes input elements with a type of image.'
Does this relate to the submit button being send, or no submit buttons being sent?!

P469 When using Safari on a Mac, you don't get to the Show develop menu in menubar checkbox via the Edit menu. You get to it via the Safari menu (Safari 5.0.2)

The first issue has already been reported, please see:
http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTit...Cd-ERRATA.html

As a side note, when you have found issues, please file them as errata here:
http://wrox.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wro...nduser/ask.php

That way, they will get tracked accordingly and make it into the very next printing.

P 394 was also reported and will be fixed in the next edition.

I will be sure the others get addressed.
