    Off topic (sorry) but people use commas for decimal marks/periods in some places. I'm used to seeing it used on price tags in France.

    Aha, that's how the Dutch do it (and it might happen in some other languages as well, maybe all other non-English languages?).

    Most nations in Europe do this. Not all of them, but most.

    Sorry for derailing the subject here, but that is good to know. One of these days I'll get to Europe.
