Are you referring to the "Type" table that lists "g" and "G" format specifiers? That's what I latched onto much too readily when scanning the manpage and later realized when working on the custom parsing code but didn't correct in the Xpressive parser. Those are not used in the output; they are used to indicate the desired formatting.
