Section 3.3.4.1,p.53 says:

a)
|     The SDT Identifier is a 32-bit unsigned value which may only be
      significant to 12 or 14 bits depending on the SS7 variant which is
      supported by the MTP Level 3 at the ASP.  Insignificant SDT
      Identifier bits are coded 0.

b)
|     The SDL Identifier is a 32-bit unsigned value which may only be
      significant to 12 or 14 bits depending on the SS7 variant which
      is supported by the MTP Level 3 at the ASP.  Insignificant SDLI
      bits are coded 0.

It should say:

a)
|     The SDT Identifier is a 16-bit unsigned value which may only be
      significant to 12 or 14 bits depending on the SS7 variant which is
      supported by the MTP Level 3 at the ASP.  Insignificant SDT
      Identifier bits are coded 0.

b)
|     The SDL Identifier is a 16-bit unsigned value which may only be
      significant to 12 or 14 bits depending on the SS7 variant which
      is supported by the MTP Level 3 at the ASP.  Insignificant SDLI
      bits are coded 0.

Notes:

In both cases, the field width "32-bit" in the text does not match
the parameter breakdown in the immediately preceding artwork.
The above corrections are based on the assumption that the figures
are correct and the text is in error.

Section 3.3.2.6,p.35 says:

   The sending node defines the Heartbeat Data field contents.  It may
   include a Heartbeat Sequence Number and/or time stamp, or other
   implementation specific details.

   The receiver of a Heartbeat message does not process this field as it
   is only of significance to the sender.  The receiver echoes the
   content of the Heartbeat Data in a BEAT ACK message.

It should say:

   The receiver of a Heartbeat message echoes the content of the
   Heartbeat Data field contained therein without further processing
   in the Heartbeat Data field of the Heartbeat Ack message.

Notes:

Apparently, the quoted text has been copied from 3.3.2.5 without
performing the appropriate rewording to accommodate the context
of 3.3.2.6 (BEAT ACK message).
