Ah! I need to clarify something after reading your mail. As far as I
understand it, the + sign _should_ be international. It has just not been
adopted on an international basis.
Thus if I write my number as +45-12345678, anyone in the world should read
this as the code for Denmark, followed by my number. They just have to add
whatever their international access code is for the country from which they
are phoning: 011 from the States, 00 from many European countries, etc. An
American site writing +1-123-456-7890 would be correctly understood in

BTW the + sign is not permitted in many form fields because phone numbers
are often numeric only fields. And there is no space for the international
code. I would have to write 451-234-5678 which I don't like because it would
look like an American number which it is not. Picky but important!

regards, Karen

Karen, I didn't know that the + sign is only a European notation. I thought
it's international. Always good to learn something new. And if we already go

From: Karen Mardahl [mailto:karen -at- mardahl -dot- dk] is a good source where you
can enter a To and From country. Not only is the country code important, the
international dialling code is important too. For example, it is 011 from
the States and 00 from France. That is why, in Europe, telephone numbers are
written with a plus sign in front of the country code to let you know that
is a country code and you have to then use your own international dialling
