Discussion:

In the table defining the results from do_out and do_in, the specification for the result error says

encountered a from_type character it could not convert

but from_type is not defined. This clearly is intended to be an externT for do_in, or an internT for do_out.

Proposed resolution:

In 25.4.1.4.2 [locale.codecvt.virtuals] paragraph 4, replace the definition in the table for the case of _error_ with

encountered a character in [from,from_end) that it could not convert.
