@ng0 @erkin Is there a European standard way for grouping digits in large numbers, e.g. 1 234 567.8 for one million, two hundred thirty-four thousand, five hundred sixty-seven and eight tenths?

Here in Canada, we're supposed to use spaces to avoid confusion with French or English decimal markers. But actual use of spaces is very rare.


@mpjgregoire @erkin @ng0@social.n0.is In Swedish, we use comma for decimal separation and non breaking space as thousands separator, in some special cases replaced by a full stop. There is no consensus about the use of thousands separator in four digit numbers. In numbers less than one, we always write (and pronounce) the zero. The same is true for Norwegian (both of them) and Danish too, except Danish always uses the full stop as thousands separator.
