Does anyone know why (or is there a way around this problem) parseFloat does not recognize international numbers? I am testing on a machine that has all French versions of software (W2K, SQL2000, IE5.5, Office 2000). When I send the number 39,2341 in to parseFloat, it returns 39,000. I was thinking it should return 39,234 since everything is French (in French, the decimal point is a comma).
