I haven't looked at this yet, but I think I'll find it very useful.

I am supposed to submit my improved numeric_cast for formal review but I got
stuck with the documentation.
I've never wrote a HTML document (I'm a MS Word adict!), so I don't have any
HTML authoring tool.
I tried to change some existing docs but my MS Word just crahses as soon as
I do a few changes!
I also tried to write HMTL code directly, but that was a nightmare... :)
Finally, I decided to wait until I grab Front Page or something, which I
never did.

Now your contriubution estimulates me to make myself some time and finish
this job.

PS: I know I owe Gennaidy a close look at the floating point comparison
issue. I haven't forgot about that, and I'll do it as soon as I organize
