Exclamation Page 28 Mulitdimentional Array is not correct.

On page 28 it reads:
"The next line of code, the fourth, shows an alternative way of creating the same array, but in this case there are four elements, each containing four elements, with subscripts from 0 to 3 at each level."

The line of code referenced is on page 27 and reads:

"Dim arrMyIntArray4( , ) as Integer = _
{ {1, 2, 3},{4, 5, 6},{7, 8, 9},{10, 11, 12},{13, 14, 15} }"
I believe this text is in error because the referenced line of code is an array of 5 elements each containing an array of 3 elements.

Based on the Visual Basic Array definition the first level would have subscripts 0 - 4 and the second level would have subscripts 0 - 2 which would actually make the following part of the statement "shows an alternative way of creating the same array," true.

"Dim arrMyIntArray3(4,2) as Integer"

Clearly you are correct. Betcha somebody was translating from a C# example and blew the translation.

Additionally, on page 28 in the second paragraph under topic "Mulitdimensional Arrays" the example that states "arrMyIntArray4(2,3) is 12" is wrong as well. This drove me crazy until I read this posting.
