A Typo in the KJV?

After all of the people who have read the King James Version of the Bible there couldn’t possibly be any typos left in it, right? Well my wife found one. Ok, it wasn’t actually in the Bible itself but in the Topical Guide of the LDS version. Acts 7:55 describes Stephen looking stedfastly to heaven at his martyrdom. Now stedfastly is a perfectly acceptable variation of the word steadfastly. However under the Topical Guide entry for steadfastness the verse is quoted with the more common steadfastly instead of stedfastly as it appears in the actual verse.

I didn’t think it was possible but my wife may be an even bigger nerd than I am.
