Hi All,

Sorry: I deleted the messages from the original thread before I 
realized I had something to say.

None of the solutions posted so far deal with the following issues:

* Thousand separators, if allowed

* Users whose number formats use "." as a thousands separator and "'" 
as the decimal separator.

* Entry of multiple "."s in one number

* Negative numbers, if allowed.  And if allowed, multiple "-"s or 
embedded "-"s.

* Currency symbol, if allowed; And if allowed, multiple or embedded 
currency symbols.
