(j3.2006) EX editing

I think there is a mistake in EX editing (page 278). The IEEE 
standard requires the "hexIndicator" 0X to appear before the first digit 
and it does in NOTE 13.14, but it is not mentioned in the text. I 
suggest the edit
[278:15] Before "x_0" add "0X".

Is it intended that x_0 be a binary digit? NOTE 13.14 suggests that this 
is so. Should we say so? If not, is it processor dependent? Perhaps the 
output in the second example of NOTE 13.14 should be -0XF.A000P+000
