Ok, that was a dumb question. Try this

   7. Drop zeros:
        * For the Japanese and Korean styles, drop all zeros.
        * For the Chinese informal styles, drop any groups
          with a value of zero.
        * For all Chinese styles, collapse (across groups) any
          remaining zeros into a singe _zero digit_.
