It doesn't. The notation 0xHHHHHHHH (where H is a hex digit) is
properly used to represent the logical value of the storage unit. When
the ordering of the bytes used to store that value is to be represented
a notation like "HH HH HH HH" is used. So you might write "an Intel
machine stores the value 0x00000001 as 01 00 00 00." You would not want
to write "an Intel machine stores the value 0x00000001 as 0x01000000."
