This is why that 94 page document is really worth looking over. These
things should not be surprises to anyone doing floating point computations
(regardless of the computer language used). That document is a classic on
the subject and well worth the time invested in reading it (and since most
readers can skip over the proofs, and the long appendix, you really are
only talking about 20-30 pages of material).
