Section 4.1.3 says:

RDATA           a variable length string of octets that describes the
                resource.  The format of this information varies
                according to the TYPE and CLASS of the resource record.
                For example, the if the TYPE is A and the CLASS is IN,
                the RDATA field is a 4 octet ARPA Internet address.

It should say:

RDATA           a variable length string of octets that describes the
                resource.  The format of this information varies
                according to the TYPE and CLASS of the resource record.
                For example, if the TYPE is A and the CLASS is IN,
                the RDATA field is a 4 octet ARPA Internet address.

Notes:

The original text says "For example, the if the ...", where it should say, "For example, if the ...".
