Considering that a LOT of countries are affected by the -A bug (almost every country in fact !), and

North America uses "." So it's not almost every country. dry.gif

My country's standard decimal point is the comma, but we're so used to US punctuation (and calculators) that when dealing with electronic equipment, we used "." as the decimal point.

However, the national standard is "," and all scientific documents and/or official documents must use "," for decimal point.

So I personally went the French way to prevent confusion between using "," as a decimal point or thousands separator.
