I use NumberFormat extensively in converting the String into float. That
is fine. Imho the problem is that the validation javascript is static. I
don't know how to obtain the current Locale in the script.

Maybe I should not try to find it out via javascript but modify the
validator framework to generate a string representation as a parameter
to the validation function call. The validation script function would
know somehow the exception locales to the '.' separators. If there is no
other way then even in a constant map.

Any ideas?
