Hi, Anthony.

Thanks for reading the JLS, Java SE 8 Edition (http://docs.oracle.com/javase/specs/) so carefully and taking the time to send us feedback.

Alex, please investigate these issues and let us know how best to proceed.

Dear Java SE Specification Leads

I believe I have found some trivial issues in the Java SE 8 specification:

On page 49:
in the phrase "Rounding toward zero chooses at its result [...]"
I think "at" should be "as":
"Rounding toward zero chooses as its result [...]"

On page 50, in Example 4.2.4-1:
in the source code, I think the line
System.out.print("gradual underflow: " + d + "\n "); should be replaced with:
System.out.println("gradual underflow: " + d);

On page 50, in Example 4.2.4-1:
in the output, I think the line
3.1415926535898E-310 3.141592653E-315 3.142E-320 0.0 should have a space at the beginning of the line, in order to be in accordance with the source code:
  3.1415926535898E-310 3.141592653E-315 3.142E-320 0.0

For reference, the document I used is "The Java Language Specification, Java SE 8 Edition" as found at http://docs.oracle.com/javase/specs/

Kind regards,
Anthony Vanelverdinghe
