Paul's answer is interesting from another point of view also -- he 
changes the decimal sign from a comma to a period and replaces the 
periods replaced by commas to get the "correct" thousand separator.
Well, you might be able to just change your locale settings to allow
the different format, but I assumed you didn't want to do that. As I
understand it, that can only be changed system-wide, not per document.

Another page "Decimal and Thousand Separators" says: "Great Britain
and the United States are two of the few places in the world that use
a period to indicate the decimal place.
It's also pretty common in computer circles (programming, data
interchange formats, etc) to use a period for a decimal separator.
