It is "see 0" in the copy of the standard available from
in Adobe Reader 8.1.2.

This the first I've seen of the copy you've just referenced (irritating,
because the hyperlinking in that copy would have saved me a lot of time).

How many other differences, other than purely typographical differences
(e.g. serif vs sans-serif font), are there between the two copies?
