Sounds great Jan.  I forgot to mention in my post that I put in an enhancement request for the ability to format numbers and currency per the locale/user preferences and it seems like it was well received so hopefully we'll see this as a native LC function at some point.

Also wanted to mention that my email with the scripts in it has been held for approval because it's too large!
