Section 2.1.3,pg.10 says:

                           <- EAP-Request/
                           EAP-Type=EAP-TLS
                           (TLS server_hello,
                             TLS certificate,
                    [TLS server_key_exchange,]
               TLS certificate_request,
                 TLS server_hello_done)

   EAP-Response/
   EAP-Type=EAP-TLS
   (TLS certificate,
    TLS client_key_exchange,
    TLS certificate_verify,
    TLS change_cipher_spec,
    TLS finished) ->

It should say:

                           <- EAP-Request/
                           EAP-Type=EAP-TLS
                           (TLS server_hello,
|                           TLS certificate,
|                           [TLS server_key_exchange,]
|                           TLS certificate_request,
|                           TLS server_hello_done)

   EAP-Response/
   EAP-Type=EAP-TLS
   (TLS certificate,
    TLS client_key_exchange,
    TLS certificate_verify,
    TLS change_cipher_spec,
    TLS finished) ->

Notes:

Rationale:

The columnar alignment of many parts of the examples
presented in Section 2.1.3 - 2.1.5 is distorted, for
multiple messages sent by the Authenticator
(denoted A-msg below, for brevity).

The example above is the 3rd A-msg on page 10.

Additional occurrences of this issue are:

- Section 2.1.3, last part, mid-page 11, third A-msg,
- Section 2.1.4, first, second and third A-msg on page 13,
- Section 2.1.5, second and third A-msg on page 15,
and second A-msg on page 16.
