            Status: NEW
         Component: Other language
           Product: Fedora Localization

Description of problem:
Many latin-american countries use the "point" (.) for decimal numbers
separator, not the "comma" (,). I find this urgent because arithmetic
operations return wrong results because they only understand the comma as the

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 17. es_MX and many other latam localizations (es_XX)

How reproducible:
You can check that under the "Region and Language" section of the control
center, also, the calculator is affected by this (and many other apps)

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to the "Region and Language" configuration GUI
2.Select "Spanish (Mexico)" as the language
3.Select "Mexico" as the format setting
4.You can see that the decimal separator is the "comma"

Actual results:
It uses a comma instead of a point

Expected results:
A point
