tl;dr but do they mean printing the actual content or the code for all the content? I'd assume the former but you can see how it would make a pretty significant difference as I'd presume the code to be longer

That's what I mean, if they break it down to 1 and 0 then I wonder how far it would stretch (presuming they didn't for this article)
