Section 9.1.3, pg.39 says:

   signedAttrs:  an optional set of attributes that are signed along
      with the content.

|  digestAlgorithm:  identifies the digital signature algorithm and
      associated parameters used to generate the signature.

   signature:  the digital signature of the associated file.

   unsignedAttrs:  an optional set of attributes that are not signed.

It should say:

   signedAttrs:  an optional set of attributes that are signed along
      with the content.

|  signatureAlgorithm:  identifies the digital signature algorithm and
      associated parameters used to generate the signature.

   signature:  the digital signature of the associated file.

   unsignedAttrs:  an optional set of attributes that are not signed.

Notes:

Rationale:
Same SEQUENCE element name listed twice, for two different explanations.

Further Note (keep for update!):
In Section 9.1, in the ASN.1 on page 37, for a better approximation
to ASN.1, all pairs of curly braces, "{" ... "}", should better be
preceded by the keyword "SEQUENCE".
