Sample Writer document with inserted table - play around with it!

If numbers in a table inserted in a Writer document are the results of a
calculation - for example, a simple multiplication of a quantity column and a
cost column - the result column format is incorrect. While numbers can be
right-clicked and the "Number format" chosen, a decimal tab in that column's
ruler has no effect and different length numbers are not correctly aligned to
the (different) decimal point symbol for the chosen langauge.

In my specific case I'm writing an invoice or a purchase order in US dollars on
a system that is set up for German by default. Any alteration to the figures
throws out the chosen US format with a comma thousands separator and decimal
point and reverts to German with a dot thousands separator and decimal comma.
This gives a diabolically incorrect mathematical result.

Changing the format after figures have already been entered in cells even
changes the figures to zero!
