Erm, sorry to poop the party again, but separators depend on the locale as 
well. For example, in Europe, adding a "." to make 600.000 (600K) more 
readable, is not even commonly used, while in the U.S. the "." is used to 
display fractions, in Germany, one would use the "," for that, so at least for 
those two different regions, you'd either write 600,000.00 or 600.000,00 (and 
both would be incorrect in many cases, depending on your locale).

If you're trying to do this manually, you're opening a can of worms. The 
problem has also already been solved in KLocale.

If in doubt about this, ask Albert Astral Cid or John Layt.
