       Set  the  `for  your eyes only' flag in the message. This causes
       GnuPG to refuse to save the file unless the --output  option  is
       given,  and PGP to use a "secure viewer" with a claimed Tempest-
       resistant font to display the  message.  This  option  overrides
       --set-filename.  --no-for-your-eyes-only disables this option.

The text should read "with a claimed Van Eck-resistant font", not "with
a claimed Tempest-resistant font".  TEMPEST is the name of a NATO
standard for hardening hardware against Van Eck phreaking [1].  Thus,
the font is not claimed to be 'Tempest-resistant' because that would
mean resisting the countermeasure.  Instead it should be 'Van
Eck-resistant', because that means the font is the countermeasure.
