The free text in an input file does not affect the product files. However, by default,
it appears in the printed documentation exactly as it is given in the input file, except

that it is filled and justified into paragraphs.
Any printable character or particular sequence of characters may appear in the free
text of a document. FunnelWeb ensures that they will appear exactly as given in the
input file, even if they happen to be escape characters or commands in the target
typesetter. However, FunnelWeb also provides a special mode that allows this
censoring to be overridden.
