I looked at that section of the video frame by frame and based on the
revision date on the copyright page, it looks like it's the PDF from
our website.

It also appears that they may have cropped the page size a bit.  I'm
not sure if the material in the margins (side notes and captions) are
still there.  He flipped through the book too quickly and the frames
were blurred too much to tell for sure.

If the C64 project would like a copy of our manual typeset on a
different page size, I'd be happy to provide it.
