Remy For the overview: the reply of Matt Innes on Telegram:
I did a little bit of digging on this one and learned quite a bit i didn't know about decimal points vs decimal commas.
Basically 60% of countries (including Aus, USA, UK, Japan, China) use decimal points, while 40% use decimal commas (most of Europe). Apparently Switzerland uses both, decimal points to refer to their own currency, and decimal commas for other currencies.
There is an international standard way to do it, written by International Bureau of Weights and Measures in 2003. Basically that is to use half spaces to separate numbers into groups of three. So we'll do it that way.
Personally i find it easier to read with commas, and it seems instinctively right to me, but hey, the 60% of us that do it right still have to live on the same planet with the 40% of you doing it wrong 😘
Just kidding, it's all good, let's make it work for the Europeans 😁
Here's a good blog post that tells me i'm wrong for using commas, thanks standards guy 🙂
