    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.
