Floating rate bond discrepency

Schweser states that the coupon rate is the reference rate +/- a margin that may vary as per the terms in the indenture. However, CFAi and Schweser also say that this margin is fixed for life(thereby allowing differences in floating rate bond value and par value when risks associated with the bond change). Can anyone clarify this? Thanks,

coupon rate can be fixed or floating, depending on type of bond.

the discrepency i was pointing out was that one section claims the margin can vary as per the terms of the indenture, wheras another section claims that the margin is fixed for life.

it does vary as per the terms of the indenture. but once you specify it, it’s fixed for the entire life of the bond.
