Corrections in the 20th Anniversary IJ

Update: Ian Shaw mentioned in the comments below that the UK edition does not have these corrections... any other confirmations? What about the alternate UK cover version?

Don posted a list of mistakes corrected in the 20th Anniversary edition of Infinite Jest (and some that weren't) over at the DFW Words Blog last month.

Absolutely worth checking out if you haven't seen it yet.

(While you're there have a look at the Jan 2016 post, A Hardly Exhaustive But Still Interesting Look at the Differences Between the Infinite Jest Galleys and First Printing)

The U.K. edition has a new cover and the new introduction but does not have the corrections listed in the article, unfortunately.

Pg. 72: She slid her [feet] out of her shoes and touched one bare foot with the toes of the other foot. (correction of *foot*)
