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)".
