Definite, Long Form Example Discrepancy[edit]

There seem to be some discrepancies between the bit values and the supposed content length in the example for the Definite Length Long Form.

First, the title says "Long form example, length 435", but the table shows "450 content octets".

Second, if you add up the two bytes they seem to add up to much less. I count 180 (largest bit on left of octet) or 333 (largest bit on right of octet).

Can anyone explain this discrepancy or am I just doing something wrong? (talk) 16:42, 14 March 2016 (UTC)Joseph Glover

I've figured out my mistake, I am now getting 435.
Should 450 be corrected to 435?
