Ran: Do all of the 5V taps measure 4.97V unloaded?

In the datasheet of the transformer it show that the HT tap in 350ma is 443DC.E.V ~ 313VAC or i don't read the spec right?

No i didn't measued all the tap, only the ones i connected to the board. i thought that if the reading with the cheap meter were the same so will the measurs with the expensive meter. (And because it was 00:30 so i was too tired)
I'll check them later.
