Section 4.2 says:

      2 The use of the symbols in 2/2, 2/7, 2/12, 5/14, /6/0, and 7/14
   as diacritical marks is described in Appendix A, A5.2
      3 These characters should not be used in international interchange
   without determining that there is agreement between sender and
   recipient.  (See Appendix B4.)

It should say:

     2 The use of the symbols in 2/2, 2/7, 2/12, 5/14, /6/0, and 7/14
   as diacritical marks is described in Appendix A, A5.2, of X3.4-1968.
      3 These characters should not be used in international interchange
   without determining that there is agreement between sender and
   recipient.  (See Appendix B4 of X3.4-1968.)

Notes:

The appendixes are in the original standard, not the RFC.

In the abstract, it says "X3, 4-" rather than "X3.4-" which is surely an OCR or transcription error.

Section all says:

Cert

It should say:

Cerf

Notes:

Vint Cerf's name is spelled wrong in the footer at the bottom of each page. Not having a copy of the original, I don't know whether it was an original bug or a transcription error in 1999. BUt it's definitely kind of amusing.

Section First page says:

the attached page, copies from

It should say:

the attached pages, copied from

Notes:

It seems certain that the intended meaning was "the attached pages, which were copied from" (where it is customary to omit the words "which were"). The attachment referred to consists of five sheets photocopied from USAS X3.4-1968, USA Standard Code for Information Interchange.
