      java version "1.3.1-beta"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.1-beta-b15)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.1beta-b15, mixed mode)


      The thousands (grouping) separator is supposed to be a blank space (according
      to information found at http://www.sprakrad.no/punktum.htm , paragraph 2d)
      this was the "most official" online reference i could come up with, w.r.t.
      formatting numbers and so on.... Their charter can be found at:
      http://www.sprakrad.no/engelsk.htm

      The current value ("\240") outputs "?", which is obviously wrong....

      The problem also occurs in 1.3.0..

      Here's a small program example, along with output for jre1.3.0_02....
      ---------- code -----
      import java.util.*;
      import java.text.*;
      public class Q {

       public static void main(String[] args) {
        Locale locale=new Locale("no", "NO");
        System.out.println("locale: "+locale);
        NumberFormat nf=NumberFormat.getInstance(locale);
        System.out.println(nf.format(1000000));
       }
      }
      ---- output ---
      H:\zx>java -showversion Q
      java version "1.3.0_02"

      locale: no_NO
