Or, if you want them *really* bogus, just use any number over 255... Since
your doc is about internal networking (yes?), it's possible that your
network might actually be using addresses from RFC 1597... "256.123.45.6"
would be a safe bet -- assuming, of course, that your audience is something
other than folks who would give you a hard time about using an impossible
number.
