What I would consider a bug is that changing the format of a cell doesn't change the data. 

If I set a cell to be number then even if the text was defined as a text field using the ' sign I 
expect that to be stripped out and the field displayed and function properly as a number. 

Just like i consider it a bug that if I select all cells in a spreadsheet and change the font or 
the font size I expect the contents of all cells to be modified to the new settings and it doesn't 
happen that way.

doesn't change this behavior, it only changes the *display* of the
contents, not the interpretation of the contents. At least, as I
understand it.
