that is a great start, thank you! Few comments, remarks:

- because we are a publishing group, and we bring these issues forward as such, I wonder whether it would not be better to choose the examples from "real" publication. Ie, photo from a classical textbook on, say, accounting, or linear algebra, or stuff like that, essentially making it clear "this is what traditional publishing has been doing, this is what we want to achieve". Using those instead of references to current web sites or invoices or things like that may be much more convincing.

- I think it is great that we start with non-English examples. Ideally, we should have examples from different places around the globe, with different scripts, cultures, etc. You already refer to the differences in number formatting (Finnish, Spanish, etc), but for all our examples having originals from 2-3 different cultures would be good.

Thanks a lot
