Default Ch5 To Do List

I believe this is a typo on the todolist_item.xml layout source and book:

Code:
android:layout_alignParentLeft="@+id/rowDate"

I am slowly getting a grasps on layouts and need further readings to comprehend all the android xml parameters and valid values.

At the moment, the implementation of the to do list adds an entry with the task on the left side of the row and the date on the right side of the row. If I type multiple words that completely fill up the whole row, the task and date overlap making it unreadable. On the xml layout, what can be added to eliminate the overlapping and wrap the task context on to the next line?

That was not a typo. Pretty neat.

I fixed it using

Code:
android:layout_toLeftOf="@+id/rowDate"
Is there a nice reference site with only android xml attributes?
