My post may have been confusing. I mean that

C11 mentions:
"integer types having specified widths"

which motivated me to suggest:
"Floating-Point Typedefs Having Specified Widths"

At any rate, in ISO/IEC 9899:2011, Section 7.20.1,
there is the clause shown below.

Best regards, Chris.


7.20 Integer types <stdint.h>

1. The header <stdint.h> declares sets
of integer types having specified widths,
and defines corresponding sets of macros.
It also defines macros that specify limits
of integer types corresponding to types
defined in other standard headers.
