Section 4.5.7 says:

It should say:

+----------------------------------------------------------------------+
|                         In Joined (J) State                          |

|                 |                 | to RPF'(S,G)    | to RPF'(S,G)    |
|                 |                 |                 |
+-----------------+-----------------+-----------------+----------------+
|  Action         | Send            | Increase Join   | Decrease Join   |
|                 | Join(S,G); Set  | Timer to        | Timer to        |
|                 | Join Timer to   | t_joinsuppress  | t_override      |
|                 | t_periodic      |                 |                 |
+-----------------+-----------------+-----------------+----------------+

Notes:

The remaining portions would be inserted into the left portion of the remaining table on Page 73 and the two overflowing items in that table would go into a continuation beneath the table on Page 73.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
It is perfectly possible to parse this with a basic knowledge of the protocol states and events.
