Added a fix I made and some that Alex and John made, too.

These are the editorial corrections to the seventh draft in the order they were made:

  • Added cross-reference for import declarations
  • Fixed example and added new example for digit-value
  • Improved discussion of transitivity for =, <, etc.
  • Noted that substring is a special case of string-copy
  • Improved wording describing alternative exponent markers
  • Fixed read-bytevector! argument order to match write-bytevector
  • Added includers to formal syntax of primitive procedures
  • Corrected formal syntax of <program> to match prose
  • Removed confusing term "top level" in favor of "outermost" (for syntax) and "global" (for bindings)
  • Replaced redundant non-digit with dot subsequent
  • Changed "distinct" to "normally distinct" in the explanation of negative zero
  • Explained that equal? is defined in terms of itself
  • Clarified that objects used to signal errors may or may not be error-objects
  • Explain that "is an error" situations may signal an error, extend the language, or fail catastrophically
  • Changed "name" to "character" in example of character escape, \x03BB
  • Moved comma outside literal string that is the printed representation of the number twenty-eight.
  • Fixed bug in derived expression for let*-values.
