+   More detail on how ‘awk’ converts numeric values into strings is
+provided in *note Strings And Numbers::.  In particular, for ‘print’,
+‘awk’ uses the value of ‘OFMT’ instead of that of ‘CONVFMT’, but
+otherwise behaves exactly the same as described in that minor node.
 According to the POSIX standard, ‘awk’’s behavior is undefined if 
 contains anything but a floating-point conversion specification.  (d.c.)
