RE: Bits is bits

 ... He said the anomaly is caused by Jbig2, an image compression standard.

Image compression is typically used to make file sizes smaller.

Jbig2 would substitute figures it thought were the same, meaning similar numbers were being wrongly swapped. ...

 

the article is not technical but from the above quote it seems that character regognition and lossy compression may be involved and if so this would have nothing to do with the 'bits is bits' part of things.

This "issue" is obviously not a fault since it's caused by a compression algorithm whos purpose is to make things smaller therefore changing a a 8 to a 6 is well within its design remit .. NFF  (No fault found) ..Smile
