Section 3.2.2 says:

      Name                   CMS Type                Inner Content
      enveloped-data         EnvelopedData           id-data
      signed-data            SignedData              id-data
      certs-only             SignedData              none
      compressed-data        CompressedData          id-data

It should say:

      Name                   CMS Type                Inner Content
      enveloped-data         EnvelopedData           id-data
      signed-data            SignedData              id-data
      certs-only             SignedData              id-data
      compressed-data        CompressedData          id-data

Notes:

The inner content type is not an optional field. Some inner content type MUST be included, id-data is the correct inner content type to be specified.

The balance of the required information is in section 3.7. It is possible that the fact that id-data is used as the encapsulated content type should be added to the section Step 1 in 3.7

Section 3.4.3.3 says:

Content-Type: multipart/signed;
protocol="application/pkcs7-signature";
micalg=sha1; boundary=boundary42

It should say:

Content-Type: multipart/signed;
protocol="application/pkcs7-signature";
micalg=sha-1; boundary=boundary42

Notes:

In this version we updated the strings associated with the micalg parameter, however the example was not updated to use the correct new value.

Section Global says:


Notes:

RFC 5751 contains several S/MIME sample messages, prefixed with the text "A sample message would be". These samples aren't actually valid S/MIME messages but merely contain 141 bytes of random garbage. In other words the S/MIME "sample messages" aren't actually sample messages.
