321      2       3      Before  "Then ...", insert  "Fix x_0>a. Let a_0 =
                          sup {a} \cup { x : a < x <= x_0 tau(x) = 0 }.
                          Notice that ||G(a_0)-F(a_0)|| \le delta.
                          If a_0 = x_0, then G(x_0) = F(x_0) and the
                          inequality is trivial.
                          Otherwise, tau(x) > 0 on (a_0,x_0) and thus tau
                          is differentiable on this interval."

322      1       3      Add "In particular, the above inequality holds for
                        x=x_0 and, as x_0 is
                        an arbitrary point on (a,b], the result follows."
