Interesting.
If I interpret that correct, Dutch should be "#,##0%"
However, "Taalunie" (language 'authority') says, based on ISO, that for
Dutch a space before percent is official, although without space is
acceptable in non technical use.

@Winfried: you're more in technical use that I am. What would be your
take here?

My personal view (based on experiences with the use of percents) is that between value and the percent character a space is optional and no space is more common.
But as I cannot offer any references, let alone standards, supporting my view, don't give too much weight to my view.
