No, it _is_ a list of limits of decimal fractions.

No, it does not use that "argument". Of course one can find
incorrect versions of the proof on the internet that do
assume this, but a correct version of the argument uses
this fact:

Fact: If two different infinite decimals represent the
same real number then one ends in all 0's and the
other ends in all 9's.

That's a true fact, easy to prove.

It passes belief that a person could actually
think that such a well known proof could contain
such a simple error, without that error being
noticed by any of the thousands of mathematicians
who've studied the subject for a century or so.
