One not so important question about HFSJ book

I started reading HFSJ a week ago, and I like the book.
I am curious about a comment in the book and hoping there is an answer to it. I won't lose sleep over it though, if no one has the answer.

Page 318 in HFSJ, there is a sentence in the bubble,i.e. "What the f*** else IS there besides HTML......".
The authors have a note to kind of explain it:
(Note to parents and teachers: the four-letter word implied in this thought bubble, that starts with "f", followed by three asterisks, is NOT what you think. It was just a word that we found too funny to include without distracting the reader, so we bleeped it out. Because it's funny. Not bad.)

My guess is the word,"fart", or is it?

I was one of the technical reviewers. I assumed "fart" as well.

Ah, yes, Bear, I see your picture in the book now. It is a honor to have you answering my questions. I appreciate it.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
