ERRATA: typesetting error with brackets at top of page 63

This is a minor typesetting error, but a potentially confusing one. It's difficult to describe here in a non-typeset way, but I'll do my best.

In the derivation for the expected out-of-sample error that is independent of any particular realization of the data set D, the final line in the derivation has a bracket size problem:

Code:
`    = E_x[E_D[g^(D)(x)^2] - 2E_D[g^(D)(x)]f(x) + f(x)^2]`
The bracket in red in the code above is a "larger" bracket in the typesetting, and the bracket in green is a "small" bracket in the typesetting. I believe the red one should be "small" and the green one "large".

You are right! Thank you.

In Problem 2.21 of my printing (1.10?), the font of "g" in the theorem looks wrong.
