Can you create a simple test-case that proves this? If so, I would say
that this is a bug in the docs, and recommend rewording it somewhat

string, or (as an approximation) rounded up to the nearest value in
the sequence 127, 255, 65535, 1114111.
Failing a basic operation like equality checking would be considered a
