Page 4 (1.5) introduces UTF-8, but has no reference.
Shouldn't there be some kind of reference, such
as: "see http://www.unicode.org/unicode/uni2book/ch02.pdf,
There is a reference on page 124 (7.5.4), which is the
sole index hit for "UTF-8", so perhaps only a forward
reference to that point is required.
Similiarly, page 15 (126.96.36.199) introduces LEB128
without a definition or reference. I assumed on
reading it that it meant "little-endian binary
128-bit number". But it required searching the
index to get to page 134 (7.6), where my assumption
was confirmed. A forward reference seems indicated.
It's possible that there are links in the on-line
version, as I'm looking at the dead-tree version.
