This standard does not prescribe a specific precision in which d= ecimal numbers are to be given. Message Sender and Message Recipient must a= gree a mutually agreeable precision for the type of transactions at hand. T= he same applies to Integers.

Implementers are reminded that some accounting applications may only be = able to handle six, or even four, decimal places.

When a field of type =E2=80=9Cdecimal=E2=80=9D is to communicate an inte= ger, the number may be represented with a trailing decimal point, a trailin= g =E2=80=9C.0=E2=80=9D or with no trailing characters. For example, the num= ber five can be represented as =E2=80=9C5=E2=80=9D, =E2=80=9C5.=E2=80=9D fo= r =E2=80=9C5.0=E2=80=9D.

When the number 0 (zero) is to be com=
municated in a Cell for decimal values, this shall be represented as ```
=
0
```

(and not `0.0`

or `0.000000`

).
