Section E.4 says:

   1) C-client >= C-server
   2) C-client - C-server <= s
   3) Check that HOTP client is valid HOTP(K,C-Client)
   4) If true, the server sets C to C-client + 1 and client is
      authenticated                           ^^^
                              ^^^             ^^^

It should say:

   1) C-client >= C-server
   2) C-client - C-server <= s
|  3) Check that HOTP client is valid HOTP(K,C-client)
|  4) If true, the server sets C-server to C-client + 1 and client is
      authenticated

Notes:

Lines up with Errata ID 2402.

The enumeration in Appendix E.4, on page 34, contains inconsistent
variable namings (cf. [Errata ID 2402]!).
To make it self-consistent, change as detailed.
