In the specification of the fractal heap we have two statements that are confusing:

- The number of bytes used to encode this field is the
*Maximum Heap Size*(in the heap’s header) divided by 8 and rounded up to the next highest integer, for values that are not a multiple of 8. - This field’s size is the minimum number of bytes necessary to encode the
*Maximum Heap Size*value (from the Fractal Heap Header). For example, if the value of the*Maximum Heap Size*is less than 256 bytes, this field is 1 byte in length, a*Maximum Heap Size*of 256-65535 bytes uses a 2 byte length, and so on.

In the first case *Maximum Heap Size* refers to the actual value stored in the header (e.g. 32) while in the second case *Maximum Heap Size* refers to the actual heap size in bytes (e.g. 65536). Maybe this can be cleaned up, I definitely stumbled on this.
