Date
Your update looks correct to me, thanks.

There was an error in the description of the initial byte's
interpretation. While "18..21" was listed as "copy 0..3 literals",
it should actually be interpreted as "copy 1..4 literals".

The "byte - 17" part is correct. 17 would encode copying "zero"
literals, but does not occur. 18 encodes copying 1 literal,
19 then 2 literals, 20 for 3 literals, 21 for 4 literals.
The description should read "18..21" as "copy 1..4 literals".
Likewise, 22 indicates "copying 5 literals", not "4 literals".
However, the state is indeed always set to "byte - 17" (which
for 21 results in 4 too).
