Hi there!

(The difference, obviously, is that the "decimal" point doesn't move or that it can.)

I'd rather say that there's no "decimal" point between two binary numbers. And the "binary" point can move perfectly well.

Yes the binary point can move but it's not really floating point until you tack on another value that represents where it will 'float'. IE an exponent. Your example code is a bit confusing by calling the fractional part a float. I think it would be better named frac or something...
