Minor typographic issues

Hi Anthony,

Thanks for the comments. 'at' should indeed be 'as', and the line with 
four floating point numbers should have four spaces at the beginning. 
For some reason the spaces disappeared when I copied the program's 
output from a shell into the spec file.

The JSR 337 Maintenance Review finished on February 9 and the 
Maintenance Release material has been sent for hosting, so these changes 
will probably not appear until the Java SE 9 Edition. (There will be 
other errata, no doubt - please see section 1.5 for the feedback alias.)
