Yes, but if PHP is set to use a European locale (as happens with de_DE),
then any non-integer numbers that are printed will have commas instead
of periods for the decimal point.
One "fix" is to output the values using printf/sprintf and the %F
conversion, which always uses a '.' for the decimal point.
Unfortunately, this only works in PHP 4.3.10 and later.
Might also take a look at the number_format() function, which
avoids the locale settings.
