It isn't in the FAQ.  It was in the following misguided posting
from Martin Gainty:

Maybe it is time to add to the FAQ (or emphasize, if I've missed it)
that _WinMain@16 is *absolutely nothing* to do with 16-bit code or
libraries.  [To anyone curious, I believe it indicates that WinMain is a
function which takes a parameter list of exactly 16 bytes, and pops them
off the stack before returning to the caller - ie it follows the
Pascal/stdcall/winapi convention.]
