The apple style guide, in its international section, says not to use commas
as a thousands separator, because either a period or a comma can be used as
a decimal point. It says either to not use any thousands separator or use
a non-breaking space.

I.e., write "123 456" instead of "123,456".

Anyone else use space in their docs?
Thanks
