Subject: Re: [office-comment] office:value-type="integer" ?

How does any of this have to do with the office:value-type? When a consumer reads the file it needs to know that we are looking a number (i.e.  float or integer). How it stores a number that happens to be an integer is up to the consumer.

Why is there no integer type when storing a number into the cell of a spreadsheet document (version 1.2) ?

After loading a document into the application memory with integers type, would it save memory for large spreadsheet ? Would it speed-up the application (also by side effect of a smaller memory footprint) and the calculations ?

Would it provide a more accurate result with integer arithmetic (than floating point number arithmetic) in specific cases ?
