Section 6.1.6 says:

6.1.6.  string and octetarray

   The data type string represents a finite length string of valid
   characters of the Unicode character encoding set.  The string data
   type MUST be encoded in UTF-8 format.  The string is sent as an array
   of octets using an Information Element of fixed or variable length.

   The length of the Information Element specifies the length of the
   octetarray.

It should say:

6.1.6.  string and octetArray

   The data type string represents a finite length string of valid
   characters of the Unicode character encoding set.  The string data
   type MUST be encoded in UTF-8 format.  The string is sent as an array
   of octets using an Information Element of fixed or variable length.

   The length of the Information Element specifies the length of the
   octetArray.

Notes:

s/octetarray/octetArray/ (twice).

Also in section 6.2:
"Information Elements containing integer, string, float, and
octetarray types in the information model ..."

Per RFC5102 and IANA's IPFIX registry, the correct name is "octetArray".
