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?


"There are no dumb questions" quoted from HFSJ. "To err is human; to forgive is divine"

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