help with misprint (?) Counterexamples in topology

I am wondering about diagram for
example 100, Minimal Hausdorff Topology.

The "special" basis neighborhoods in
the diagram do not seem to coincide
with the defining conditions.

The second coordinate has j>n for that
n indexing the basis neighborhood,
but the diagram seems to indicate j<n.

Also, if I am correct about the error
in the diagram, then should not the
inequality be changed to j>=n so that
there is a basis neighborhood associated
with the first row of the diagram as
with every other row?

I am probably just misreading the
definition. But it has me confused.
