Precision and CD's

I believe that Mathematica 2.0 use figures like "accuracy" of
6.234 decimal digits.  Presumably this corresponds to some number
of binary places.  Though version 3.0 may be different.

I got -0.x 10^(-24), and it refused to tell me the Accuracy
or Precision of the answer.  [I didn't count how many 0s. The
more the merrier.]
