This is interesting.

From the above it looks like the BIOS version is actually a hexadecimal number, both in the dmidecode output (not obvious) and when displayed through PDT (obvious).

So the decimal equivalents of the CPM BIOS data are 21 (0x15) and 24 (0x18) respectively.

I can see how this could raise a nugget of confusion if someone didn't know that the dmidecode BIOS version was in hexadecimal.
