I was reading this link.
Here I noticed that, in table titles "Float Values (b = bias)", in exponent column, entry for denormalized reals is $00..00$, but in value column, the entry is $-b+1$. Why is there $+1$? If we consider bias of $127$ for single precision format, shouldnt it be $0-127$ only? If its $-126$, then shouldnt the entry in the exponent column be $00..01$?
(The article seems to have taken from Stallings book specified in the references. Stallings book also says the same as above.)
