Please mention that the reference rendering is available as 
doc/example-output.png, and s/Postscript/PostScript/

Note for readers of this list (but probably not for the book): this is more a 
test of Unicode coverage of installed TrueType fonts than a test of PAPS itself. 
I.e., without these fonts, some characters will not be rendered. Nevertheless, 
it is a good way to check if PAPS works by itself and if the font setup is good 
enough for it.

There is only one UTF-8 character set, so s/sets/set/.

Otherwise, very good.
