|Thanks...I'm looking at your post and I STILL see three hashmarks unless I look
|with a magnifying glass, and then I can resolve them into two. Sorry about
|that, and yes, that was one of the "preprint" formats. The correct format does
|just fine on the engineering exponent problem.
|Now, I still don't understand what forces the "three". I see TWO hashmarks, TWO
|digits in the mantissa and ONE digit in the exponent. Whence comes the three?
It's two hash marks followed by a zero dot zero E+zero
The two hash marks plus the zero comprise the three place-holder.
