[texhax] Problem with \LaTeX macro

The following minimal file

\LaTeX 2e

leads to an error message.  If you remove the 2 it doesn't.  Any number 
from 1 to 7 will casue the error message, but 8 and 9 (nor any other 
character I tested) does.  The message is 

"Bad character code"

and then "e".  This occurs in a paper submitted by an online journal and I 
can obviously do whatever he wants in a different, but I am curious what 
is going on.
