    Not everywhere - there are many different standards about
    how to write the result of say 15707963/500 =

    a) 31415.926
    b) 31,415.926
    c) 31.415,926
    d) 31 415,926
    etc.

    All depending on the country where the one who writes it
    lives.

    * Hovewer for the /proc interface I think that a) is *
    * JUST FINE *

    Vojtech

    PS. My country uses d).

    PPS. And the formatting of the fractional part differs
    too ...
