Default the Figure 1-3 confused me

The Figure 1-3 on page 6:
"Microsoft.Xna.Framework.Pipeline.dll" appears three times.

Should the upper one be "Microsoft.Xna.Framework.dll"?
Should the middle one be "Microsoft.Xna.Framework.Game.dll"?
Should the lower one be "Microsoft.Xna.Framework.Content.Pipeline.dlls"?(H ere I typed a "s" after "dll", because the text above the figure have. I'm not sure if it is also an error.)

This could be a naming issue. As far as I can remember the dlls were named differently in the XNA beta. When I got the book myself I will check it out and make sure this gets corrected. I have to say I'm confused myself right now :)

Thank you. :)

And in page 21
the code, in this loop is:
Code:
for (int y = -1; y <= resolutionHeight / backgroundTexture.Height; y++)
and the sample code in the book site is:
Code:
for (int y = -1; y <= resolutionHeight / backgroundTexture.Height +1; y++)
I thought maybe the typist made a mistake herer.

It makes sense because I changed the way the tiles are rendered later. I made sure the last tile (+1 one) is never visible because it always goes from -1 to the max. tile +the scrollPosition. See the other thread for more details about this (its called Chapter 1 something).
