Change Spanish formatnum behavior
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Author: bachinchi

Description:
According to the Manual of Style, the numbers should be separated by spaces (non-breaking spaces). The comma and dot can be used as decimal separators.

We request to change the current behavior to match the one of fr.wikipedia with the difference the dot should be accepted as decimal separator too, although the comma is preferred.

So, formatnum would return this:

{{formatnum:1890.01}} -> 1 890,0

{{formatnum:1890,01}} -> 1 890,0

{{formatnum:1890}} -> 1 890

This isn't a per project customisation, it's done per language.

Well, the spanish Wikipedia doesn't say that. It was defined by the Real Academia Española, so it's kind of official: http://buscon.rae.es/dpdI/SrvltGUIBusDPD?lema=n%C3%BAmeros#2
