manual.pdf, page 20 of 66:

Code:
vs[3].(-1.7f, 0.4f);


Should be:

Code:
vs[3].Set(-1.7f, 0.4f);

manual.pdf, page 19 of 66: There are two occurrences of "This an edge shape" in code samples. Those should be "This is an edge shape" instead.

manual.pdf, page 20 of 66: "This a chain shape" should be "This is a chain shape".

Should I stop posting these typos individually? I could save these and post them later if it's annoying.

The second code block on page 58 says

body->WakeUp();

I guess this should be body->SetAwake(true);

Kudos to Erin!!

manual.pdf, page 32 of 66:

"A static body has does not move under simulation and behaves as if it has infinite mass."

The first "has" is superfluous. Otherwise something's missing between "has" and "does".

I notice that http://box2d.org/manual.html is showing a not found message. That link is all over the web so it would be good to put something there to direct to the current documentation.

Personally I found the html help really convenient, more so than pdf. If you are trying to cut down on bandwidth that's understandable but otherwise it would be great to have html somewhere again, even if it's for v2.1.2 with a notice saying that the pdf is the current version.

I'm planning to move to Latex soon for the manual. I'm not sure how good the Latex to HTML converters are these days.

At a minimum I will fix the manual.html link. Thanks.
