Section 5.2.2. says:

   The details of the calculation are different for DSA signatures than
   for RSA signatures.

It should say:

   The details of the calculation are different for DSA signatures from
   that for RSA signatures.

Notes:

different from, not different than
--VERIFIER NOTES--
Our research shows that this is a matter of opinion -- in US English grammar, the “different than” is acceptable this way. Jon prefers “different from” (the suggested erratum) and David “different than.” Thus our agreed resolution is to reject, as this is debate over usage, not an actual erratum.
