Default Add Bold Code problem

Seems to be a lot of problems with the bold code in the hands on portions. I'm in chapter 7 now, starting page 189, and the bold portion is only a small section of the changes in the code. The whole section with adding the array data isn't bold.
I don't see any errata listed on this site, is there anywhere that I can find the the right bolding? I can usually sort it out, but it's rather distracting.
I thought I might have missed doing something in an earlier chapter, but it's a newly created project.

There has been no errata update to deal with the exceedingly poor editing job regarding the bold code. If your project is not working, someone might be able to help out if you put your …Controller.m file in a response. Other missing bold is
return[listOfMovies count];

listOfMovies = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init];

[listOfMovies release];
Also, it is not explicitly included and I don't recall if it is mentioned earlier in the book, but any changes made in Interface Builder need to be saved for them to take effect when compiled in Xcode. Older versions of Xcode used to ask you to do so.

Some chapters are not that bad with the bold, others are very poor. The upcoming SplitView section of this chapter is basically unusable as written for other reasons, but converting it to a working version was insightful. A previous post has a link to an online article by the author regarding a very similar, working project using the SplitView.
