    btw: can you please recreate manual.html with the same settings as before, but with LaTeX2HTML 2008 (instead of the older LaTeX2HTML 2002-2-1). This fixes especially a bug that caused a line "<tex2html_verbatim_mark>mathend000#" to appear in the resulting html file, making it invalid.

    Another minor thing in the manual, not worth opening a new separate report:

    > TraditionalComment is the expression that matches the string "/*" followed by a character that is not a *, followed
    > by anything that does not contain, but ends in "/*".

    If I do not completely misunderstand that paragraph, it should read

    > …but ends in "*/".

    (the comment closing token */ instead of /*)

    Finally, I have read the whole manual and found some more typos and other trivial issues:

    4.1, page 13
    > It is possible, but not considered as good Java programming style to put own helper class
    > (such as token classes) in this section.
    class --> classes

    4.2.3, page 16
    > The default end of file values depends on the return type of the scanning method:

    4.3, page 22
    > The “lexical rules” section of an JFlex specification contains

    4.3.1, page 22
    > The syntax of the ”lexical rules” section is described by the following BNF grammar
    BNF --> EBNF
    (Actually this is also not true if you refer to the original EBNF from Niklaus Wirth. However, modifications to EBNF are quite common, whereas BNF is usually exactly used as it was originally defined for ALGOL 60)

    4.3.2, page 25
    > a | b (union)
    > is the regular expression, that matches all input that is matched by a or by b.
    > a b (concatenation)
    > is the regular expression, that matches the input matched by a followed by the input matched by b.
    expression, that --> expression that
    (two times)

    4.3.2, page 26
    > So a$ is equivalent to a / \r|\n|\r\n|\u2028|\u2029|\u000B|\u000C|\u0085.This is a bit
    \u0085.This --> \u0085. This
    (space missing)

    > (in which case the scanning method return with this value)
    return --> returns

    4.3.5, page 29
    > They will be remain stable and supported between JFlex releases as long as possible.
    will be remain stable --> will remain stable

    4.3.5, page 30
    >The pushed back characters will after the call of yypushback not be included in yylength and yytext().
    This sentence should be revised: yytext() has its brackets, while the other two methods do not. Also, I suggest moving "after the call of yypushback" to the front of the sentence.

    5.2, page 32
    > for instance, when you scan a HTML page, it may have embedded information

    6.2, page 35

    the dot is not indented, but probably it should be, because it is an element of the set

    6.2, page 36
