It should say:

Delete this header.

Notes:

According to section 3.1 p. 6, the typecnt and charcnt fields of the header MUST NOT be zero.

===== Verifier notes =====
There are errors in these tables, but the suggested fix is not correct. There really needs to be a proper update to the document instead.
