      Name: gsC80088 Date: 02/11/99


      In the documentation page of class DecimalFormat:

      http://java.sun.com/products/jdk/1.2/docs/api/java/text/DecimalFormat.html

      section "Notes", third paragraph, first line:

        "Illegal patterns, such as "#.#.#" or mixing '_' and '*' in the same pattern, ... "

      a reference is made to the characters '_' and '*', which
      are nowhere defined to be pattern symbols.
      According to the definition of patterns, they can appear in patterns
      without any restriction.
