No, it means that the Borland protected mode interface is 16 bits.  It still
compiles and runs on 32-bit machines.  In 16-bit protected mode, the memory
ceiling is 16MB, as opposed to 4GB(?) in 32-bit protected mode.  It still
works on a 386 or better, but it uses a 286-style protected mode interface.

This statement *is* a little ambiguous.

What about 32 bit machines? Does this mean that non-16 bit machines
can't compile programs which run in protected mode?
