Not sure if this appropriate, but I wanted to warn you about the dilemma that in some locale the thousand separator and the decimal symbol are exactly the opposite. Example:

   German locale: 1.000,00  -> one thousand
   US locale    : 1,000.00  -> one thousand

So simply treating the comma and the dot alike without taking the locale into account may result in wrong values.
