Well, ok I guess. BUT why is the conversion simply to the internal bits of the character representation? Surely digit characters ought to convert to the number they directly represent? And wouldn't it be more correct to convert all the other chars via the encoding in use? Unless, I suppose we are actually using unicode already in which case one might make a decent argument that that is The Right One.
