Ah yes, there could be aggregates on these values. Thank you for your help! I
remember that for html files in excel, you can add  style attribute with
mso-number-format="...". From looking at the xml, I'm not quite certain yet,
but I take it that it's not possible to use that attribute in the sheet.xml?
