example - Prepend, not add

Same as with HOLDS, this should read “add … to the beginning of the pictured number output buffer”.

Test (UTF-8):

T{ 0. <# 123. #s 606D xhold #> s" ?123" compare -> 0 }T

comment - Specification of HOLDS is ambiguous

Yes, same issue with XHOLD; apparently everybody assumed that adding to the pictured numeric output buffer always means “before”, not after. That's why the language felt clear enough.
