Synopsis: Incorrect "invalid suffix on integer constant" error

Strange as it may seem, the behavior is correct, and mandated by the C Standard. 0x00E-0x00A is a single preprocessor token, of type pp-number, and it must become a single compiler token, but it can't. The gotcha is the `E-' sequence, that makes it seem like the exponent notation of floating-point constants.
