Description xale 2006-10-13 15:33:28 UTC
In a table, only .-- can be used to replace the "00" decimals for a currency.

Using .&emdash;* will replace all the decimals instead of only the  undefined ones:

as an example

3
4.25

will become

3.--
4.25

but

3.&emdash;
4.&emdash;

is "written" in some locale? am i missing something?

thanks for fixing if it's really a bug!

a.l.e

* &emdash; is a longer dash, ... for those are not html entities native language :-)

It could be good to also use the "emdash" for currency input in table cells.
this feature is from Spreadsheet component (Writer' tables "borrow" it from
there), thus I change th "component" field.
