md5 collision example

report 2004/199 has example of MD5 collision.

It also says column 1 is 'offset'. I tried to verify
the collision with the following hex translated to
ASCII 128 byte files. I don't understand what the
'offset' is about. Here's the hex of the two
collisions I translated to 128 byte .bin files.

I checked the .bin files and they have the bytes as in the ASCII string.

What am I doing wrong?

The MD5 collision example is in the wikipedia entry
for MD5, not in 2004/199.
