In page 263, in the explanation after the Tax_en_US class it says "We just specify the name of the package before the name of the class".
But in line 9, name of the class is not specified but the "base name" is specified.

yeah, using the class name also works fine

So, either the code can be changed to represent fully qualified class name or in the statement, "name of the class" can be changed to "base name".

And in page 266, in the real world scenario box, it would be useful to add the output after formatting as

please do correct me, if my understanding is wrong.

I logged page 263's in the errata. It should be have said base name. While the class name does work, that's not something you have to know for the exam. In fact, it isn't a good idea to do in general!

For page 266, I added it to our private list since it isn't an error. It is a good idea though!
