Several weeks back, I sent out a request for anyone interested in
reviewing a pre-publication article. The article is finally published at
IBM's developerWorks Java zone

        http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/java/

 with the exciting title, "Resolving NumberFormat's parsing issues".  It
will be on the home page until next week and remain directly available at:

http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/java/library/j-numberformat/

    Every author thinks their own work is wonderful, but I do believe this
one has information not generally known, certainly not the specifics, of
issues that can cause NumberFormat/DecimalFormat to lose signs and data.
Even if you don't use them directly, several frameworks do.  Most of the
germane information begins at the section
"UnexpectedResults.equals(bigTrouble)".
