Section 3 says:

   FMT             = %x66 %x6D %x74 %x20

   LABL            = %x6C %x61 %x62 %x6C

   OFFS            = %x6F %x66 %x66 %x73

   DATA            = %x64 %x61 %x74 %x61

   CNFG            = %x63 %x6E %x66 %x67

   TEXT            = %x74 %x65 %x78 %x74

It should say:

The values for FMT, LABL, OFFS, DATA, CNFG and TEXT all specify
lower-case text values, not upper-case.


We can reduce the number of bad implementations by adding a small note mentioning that some of these values are lower case. The values appear at first glance to all be upper-case. A hasty implementer might carelessly use upper case values here instead of the correct lower-case values.

=ISE Note=
The observation is correct (that these six labels use lower case text values and that a careless implementer might miss that fact), but there is no editorial error in the document.
A future revision of this document might add such a note.
