taginfo shows extra characters in numbers

Description

Consider a simple page like: http://taginfo.openstreetmap.de/keys/parking:lane:both

In the "Values"-Tab, numbers >999 have a special character as a "group separator". In this case, the first row is:

2 012 47.92% no_stopping

Those should be avoided for the following reasons:

  • copy&paste does not work in many circumstances
  • the special character (U+2009, THIN SPACE) is shown as a square (at least in by browser/my font), making the number hardly readable.

That thin space doesn't show up properly seems to be a bug in Opera. It works in all other major browsers. See: http://my.opera.com/community/forums/topic.dml?id=246660 . A bugreport has already been sent to Opera, so hopefully this will be fixed.

I think the thin spaces make the numbers much easier to read which is more important than easy copy&paste. If you actually need the numbers for some other use, you can also use the API. So I'll close this as 'wont fix'.
