Section 3.5 says:

   Note that a code of 16 that follows an immediately preceding 16
   modifies the previous repeat count, which becomes the new repeat
   count.  The same is true for a 17 following a 17.  A sequence of
   three or more 16 codes in a row or three of more 17 codes in a row is
   possible, modifying the count each time.  Only the final repeat count
   is used.  The modification only applies if the same code follows.  A
   16 repeat does not modify an immediately preceding 17 count nor vice
   versa.

It should say:

   Note that a code of 16 that follows an immediately preceding 16
   modifies the previous repeat count, which becomes the new repeat
   count.  The same is true for a 17 following a 17.  A sequence of
   three or more 16 codes in a row or three or more 17 codes in a row is
   possible, modifying the count each time.  Only the final repeat count
   is used.  The modification only applies if the same code follows.  A
   16 repeat does not modify an immediately preceding 17 count nor vice
   versa.

Notes:

"three of more" should be "three or more"
