Section 8.2.2 says:

       c. Convert the message representative m to an encoded message
          EM of length k octets (see Section 4.1):

             EM' = I2OSP (m, k).
 

It should say:

       c. Convert the message representative m to an encoded message
          EM of length k octets (see Section 4.1):

             EM = I2OSP (m, k).


Notes:

In 'step 2. c.', in fact "EM" is computed, not "EM'" -- as stated
in the text; see also 'step 3.' below.
