Summary 0001376: CX shading on C99 time conversion functions
Description The descriptions of asctime(), ctime(), gmtime(), and localtime() should not have CX shading on this paragraph:
The asctime(), ctime(), gmtime(), and localtime() functions shall return values in one of two static objects: a broken-down time structure and an array of type char. Execution of any of the functions may overwrite the information returned in either of these objects by any of the other functions.

The text is derived from the introductory paragraph for time conversion functions in C99 (7.23.3 para 1 in N1256). There is also a wording difference with C99 that is worth fixing.
Desired Action On page 600 line 20907 section asctime(),
page 727 line 24771 section ctime(),
page 1113 line 37681 section gmtime(),
page 1265 line 42218 section localtime(), remove CX shading from:
The asctime(), ctime(), gmtime(), and localtime() functions shall return values in one of two static objects: a broken-down time structure and an array of type char. Execution of any of the functions may overwrite the information returned in either of these objects by any of the other functions.
and change it to:
The asctime(), ctime(), gmtime(), and localtime() functions shall return values in one of two static objects: a broken-down time structure and an array of type char. Execution of any of the functions that return a pointer to one of these object types may overwrite the information in any object of the same type pointed to by the value returned from any previous call to any of them.
