Hi again Yves,
If you do choose to use Serendipity Library, the last example I
posted is only partially correct: The formatNumber function is used
to format user input (which uses the decimal separator speficifed in
the stack's numberEditMask); A different function, convertNumber, is
used to format numbers in generic format (ie: no thousands separator
& "." as decimal separator.).
Also, the functions only work with explicit decimals, so (assuming
comma & space as above) formatNumber("123456789",2) returns "123 456
