Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Updated: (OFFICE-2603) Add (non-normative ?)reference to IEEE 754 and 854

     [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2603?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Robert Weir  updated OFFICE-2603:

Add the following two informative references:

[IEEE 754] 754-1985 IEEE Standard for Binary Floating-Point Arithmetic, IEEE (1985)
[IEEE 854] 854-1987 Standard for Radix-Independent Floating-Point Arithmetic, IEEE (1987)

[Rob's note:  these standards are better known by their numbers rather than their titles, so that is why I'm suggesting the short names as above]

In section 3.6, change:

"In practice, applications tend to use at least one IEEE 754-1985 binary floating-point"


"In practice, applications tend to use at least one [IEEE 754] binary floating-point"

and change:

"When IEEE 754 representations are used"


"When [IEEE 754] representations are used"

and change:

"Applications may use IEEE 854-1987"


"Applications may use [IEEE 854]"

Finally, in section 4.3.1, change:

"Many evaluators implement numbers as 64-bit IEEE floating point values"


"Many evaluators implement numbers as 64-bit [IEEE 754] floating point values"

  was:Add IEEE 754-1985 and IEEE 854-1987 to the Non-normative references

Note there is a new edition of IEEE 754, from 2008.  Should we reference that instead?
