> The website documentation for the fileMode parameter that occurs in a number of places
in the assembly descriptor format description such as [1] does show a leading 0 for its values,
 but it isn't clear that this is to declare the value as octal.  Anyone who is used to using
the chmod command on *nix doesn't expect  to have to prefix the octal value with a 0, and
therefore might assume the 0 to be an insignificant digit.  It would be helpful to add a comment
in the descriptions of these parameters that the value is interpreted as decimal unless preceded
by a leading 0 to indicate an octal value.
