(You care because the way fractions are dealt with in binary can totally screw up transaction totals in javascript shopping carts unless you code carefully to deal with partial dollars in a specific way, that’s why. Remember that rounding error scam in the movie Office Space? It’s sorta like that.)


A typographic, designological, visulicious extravaganza!
