But this wouldn't affect the result in this case, would it?

Mauro referred to FourCC codes while reviewing an earlier version of this,
such as RGB(15).

Does \× imply only the next two characters are hexadecimal? I have to admit
I don't remember seeting that, nor \x notation is common.

Making the end of the line invisible without scrolling vertically doesn't
improve readability for me. It does depend on window width though. I'd
simply only use that if 80 isn't enough.
