https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=121307

          Priority: P3
            Bug ID: 121307
          Assignee: ooo-issues@incubator.apache.org
           Summary: Range of values for variables of type Double and
                    Single are wrong
          Severity: normal
        Issue Type: DEFECT
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: All
          Reporter: salva_sbs@openoffice.org
          Hardware: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: AOO 3.4.1
         Component: Manuals
           Product: documentation

In the help of OOo Basic, Pootle (¿?) and on the wiki Basic Guide
http://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/BASIC_Guide/Numbers, are listed
of erroneous form (or incorrect notation, or at least confusing in my opinion)
the values accepted by variables of type Single and Double.

** Wiki:
Single variables:
Single variables can store any positive or negative floating point number
between 3.402823 x 10<sup>38</sup> and 1.401298 x 10<sup>-45</sup>.

Correctly:
Single variables can store any positive floating point number between 1.401298
x 10<sup>-45</sup> and 3.402823 x 10<sup>38</sup>, or any negative
floating
point number between -3.402823 x 10<sup>38</sup> and -1.401298 x
10<sup>-45</sup>.

Double variables:
Double variables can store any positive or negative floating point numbers
between 1.79769313486232 x 10<sup>308</sup> and 4.94065645841247 x
10<sup>-324</sup>

Correctly:
Double variables can store any positive floating point numbers between
4.94065645841247 x 10<sup>-324</sup> and 1.79769313486232 x 10<sup>308</sup>,
or any negative floating point numbers between -1.79769313486232 x
10<sup>308</sup> and -4.94065645841247 x 10<sup>-324</sup>


** In Spanish OpenOffice.org Basic Help, page "tipos de variables" (incorrect
notation also):
Single: Las variables simples pueden tener valores positivos o negativos desde
3,402823 x 10E38 a 1,401298 x 10E-45

Double:
Las variables dobles pueden tener valores positivos o negativos desde
1.79769313486232 x 10E38 a 4.94065645841247 x 10E-324


** In English Pootle (incorrect notation): 
1.797 x 10E30
Correctly:
1.797 E30  or  1.797 x 10<sup>30</sup>

Note: <sup>superscript</sup>

Sorry for my English disastrous. I use Google translator :)
