Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-2893) 6.13.28: NumberValue- text interpretation not defined for all symbols

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2893?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=21874#action_21874 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-2893:

I just received another book that shows spaces as separators both before and after the decimal point.  The pattern seems to be spacing between groups of five digits so it is easier to read, transcribe, etc.

The book was obtained through a lead from Patrick Durusau.  It is the NIST Handbook of Mathematical Functions, published this year.  It is like Abramowitz and Stegun on steroids.  It is an amazing example of mathematical typography that would not exist but for the devotion of Donald Knuth to the subject.  I bought mine as a "Like New" via amazon.com.  It is also a testament to where computation and numerical methods have advanced to since 1950.  It is 795 pages of text in a total of 950 with references, keys to notations, index, etc.  I haven't taken the CD-ROM out of its jacket.

An example of space separation:

3.12.1  pi = 3.14159 26535 89793 23846 ...

> The Numbervalue function includes a regular expression of the acceptable text strings, but doesn't specify how to interpret them.  Specifically, the percent sign (%) and exp (eE).  For percent, is everything to the left divided by 100?
