Section B.1 says:

Six hash functions are given as examples for the encoding methods
in this document: MD2 [33], MD5 [41], SHA-1 [38], and the
proposed algorithms SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512 [39].

It should say:

Six hash functions are given as examples for the encoding methods
in this document: MD2 [33], MD5 [41], and the algorithms SHA-1,
SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512 [38'].

Notes:

RFC 3447 has been published on Feb 04, 2003 (according to the
time stamp of rfc3447.txt on <ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/>).

The new "Secure Hash Standard", FIPS Pub 180-2 had been published
on "2002 August 1" and became "effective on February 1, 2003" as
specified on page ii of FIPS 180-2, "9. Implementation Schedule".

Both events predate the publishing date of RFC 3447.

Therefore, the first sentence of the second paragraph on page 53 should be as noted above.
