You won't get it with just floats. You will have to use pairs of floats to 
get to this level.

the highest positive integer is 340282346638528859811704183484516925440 
but you really want to know which is the highest positive integer for 
which it is possible to subtract 1. It's 16777216 (I'm saying this number 
very often on pd-list).
