Summary0002053: Misleading comment on specifying a unit taking real number values
DescriptionSection 15.8. Units says:

    1.0 kg specifies a weight.

Here Inform can see from the decimal point in the prototype number that real numbers will be involved.

That's incorrect, and definitely misleading, since e.g. "1.1 kg specifies a weight" doesn't work. The digit after the point has to be 0, or else we end up specifying a "notation including more than one number" as discussed in Section 15.14.
