-    <para>Floating-point data types are examples of data stored in the DBMS with the precision matching the
-    scale of the number. <database>FLOAT</database> and <database>DOUBLE PRECISION</database> (DOUBLE)
-    are examples.</para>
+    <para>Floating point data types are stored in an IEEE 754 binary format that comprises sign,
+    exponent and mantissa.  Precision is dynamic, corresponding to the physical storage format of
+    the value, which is exactly 4 bytes for the FLOAT type and 8 bytes for DOUBLE PRECISION.</para>
     <para>Considering the peculiarities of storing floating-point numbers in a database, these data types
     are not recommended for storing monetary data. For the same reasons, columns with floating-point data
     are not recommended for use as keys or to have uniqueness constraints applied to them.</para>
