Section 5 says:

The following JSON strings evaluate to the accompanying values:

    "/i\\j"      5
    "/k\"l"      6

It should say:

The following JSON strings evaluate to the accompanying values:

    /i\j      5
    /k"l      6

Notes:

In JSON itself some special characters like the backslash and the double quote character can be escaped using a backslash. A similar escaping was not described for JSON pointers. Therefore it is not clear to me why such an escaping is needed in JSON pointers too. Maybe the additional double quotes around the example JSON pointers enforce this. In the corrected text I have stated my view on this.
