Subject Re: i18n numbers

That would make sense yes.

But the problem is I'm having a general query filed. I don't know user
entered String or a number, or what he meant... Is 2008 a year (number) or
part of an address String e.g. keeping the address.
Or maybe he's combining stuff like "Potter 19,99"
