Hi,

echo ${(<TAB> shows
...
#  -- evaluate as numeric expression
...

zshexpn(1) says:
      #      Evaluate the resulting words as numeric expressions and output
             the characters corresponding to the resulting integer.

I think the help text is missing the crucial bit here:
output the characters corresponding to the resulting integer.

Perhaps
"#:evaluate as numeric expression and interpret as character codes"
or so would be a better description.

Thanks,
