"the use of three 32 bit words"? Shouldn't words be 16-bit, and dwords 32-bit?

From word: "In computing, an integral data type that is usually equal to the size of a CPU's largest register or large enough to hold its largest addressable memory location. In the world of IBM-compatible PCs, "word" has become largely synonymous with "16-bit integer" due to the prevalence of early 16-bit x86 processors." — Matt 20:26, 16 Sep 2004 (UTC)
