In Germany, 10,000 means ten and 10.000 means ten thousand. Ditto in
other European countries, though I don't know if that's changing. That's
why it's a bad idea to use commas to separate thousands.

Wikinews?

IEEE
"6) Use thin spaces (instead of a comma) between numbers in tens or
hundreds of thousands (e.g., 60 000, 100 000, but 4000)."
