Hi Peter,

I totally agree.  There should be a systemNumberFormat function to 
return decimal character, thousands separator, and currency symbol 
string and/or a formatNumber function that returns a numeric value 
formatted as per system preferences.  Especially since every solution 
posted here is platform-specific.

If you find or log this in BZ, post the # and I'll allocate some votes 
to it.
