     125          While all these versions are identical in their technical content,
     126          the HTML, PDF, and UTF-8 plaintext versions show non-Unicode characters directly.
     127          This often makes it easier to understand examples, and readers are therefore advised
     128          to consult these versions in preference or as a supplement to the ASCII version.</t>
