Section 13.1.3. says:

   mL = intended length in octets of the encoded message, at least tLen
        + 11, where tLen is the octet length of the DER encoding T of a
        certain value computed during the encoding operation

It should say:

   emLen = intended length in octets of the encoded message, at least
        tLen + 11, where tLen is the octet length of the DER encoding T
        of a certain value computed during the encoding operation

Notes:

In the following text it is called emLen.

Changed to editorial.
