As usual, the Brits' are the odd balls here, again. wink.gif

Decimal separator is ',' while thousand separator is '.' in most of the world.
In Britain and other english countries plus a few others it's the other way around. tongue.gif

You are not alone in this one, in Spain commas and dots are used that way too, though it seems to be changing in later years, lots of books and people still use them like Brits do.

We still use them because it is English Language and we are English biggrin.gif It won't be changing anytime soon I'd imagine.

In holland you'd write a thousand like 1000 pr 1.000, but not 1,000 that'd mean just one...

In the English Language 1.000 means One and 1,000 means One Thousand. And 1,000,000 means One Million

I just heard that a new standard in Britain for guitars is that there will be no more dots on guitar necks since they will all be replaced with commas.
