​Charles, I had no problem opening attachment 94576 in version 4.2.1.1
(Build ID: 420m0(Build:1)) of Writer  - no weird characters that I could
see, but the comma in $ 38,52 surprised me ; I should have expected a
decimal point....[?]

Wouldn't that depend on what language is used. I thought some countries
use a comma instead of the decimal point.

Henri,

You are correct. The US uses the decimal point or period and I know some
European countries use the comma instead.

There is setting under TOOLS>OPTIONS>LANGUAGE SETTINGS>LANGUAGE to set
the default separator based on the system location (US, France, etc.). I
think the default is to use the local setting but it can be reset.

​Sorry, Charles ; I, too, should have been explicit : I tested on 64-bit
Linux Mint 16. Recently I've noted several issue reported by Windows users
which I have not been able to reproduce on GNU/Linux​
​ ; as I presume a majority of LO users are running Windows machines (Does
anyone know if this presumption is correct ? We should be able to get an
idea from the downloads statistics.), it's important that LO works well
with Windows OSes....

​Indeed, upscope, many countries​
​, including my own, Sweden, do use a comma for this purpose ; I merely
expected that a ​«Check Request Form» for an amount in USD and filled in to
represent conditions in Las Vegas would have used a decimal point....

True enough, but I use English (US), which definitely uses periods there.

Someone else already confirmed the bug in the bug tracker, but
apparently it is Windows only...
