Re: Issues With Number Processing or Display On Creative Labs Web Page

There is no ^ symbol on the page (at least, not within the prices we're

The HTML source code for the price line is:

<span class="saleprice red">$369<sup>99</sup>&nbsp;</span>

So, what they are showing is a dollar sign, the three digits 3 6 9, and then
as a superscript following that, two more digits 9 9.

I can't say I'm surprised that NVDA would read this as five consecutive digits
3 6 9 9 9, but there is no symbol of any sort between the dollar amount the
the cents.

I hope that helps,

Yes I suspect it is an issue with the character sets used in the country
that the page is indicating. Maybe its as simple as that.
However actually getting in touch with anyone at Creative who is not a
marketing person is almost impossible from past experience.

I have no idea why this should be there and why its not rendered as
something in Fire fox. I suspect the page template is quite old as it
has no useful headers or lists to help us out.

Hi Group,

I am wondering if anyone else is having this problem. When I visit the
below web page on the Creative Laqs site, I get oddities with the
prices for the various products. For example, many of the prices are
ridiculously high such as $16999 for a set of small portable speakers.
When examining it closely, it seems these figures are deleting a
decimal point and replacing it with the first digit after the decimal
point. So the above example should actually read $16.99. This has
happened a number of times over the years. Here is the page.
I think broken pencils are pointless.

Please reply to the list;
