Well, it pays absolutely no attention to the language within the
string.  The only relevant bits are that the numbers must be displayed
using arabic numerals [0-9], and they must be displayed without using
a grouping separator (all digits must be consecutive).

Someone with more internationalization experience than me (that is,
someone with *any* internationalization experience) can probably make
a better judgement on how well this would work on international text.
