CLDR Ticket #9102(accepted data)

"Grouping" (thousands) separator in CLDR contradicts DIN standard and the "Duden"

Description

For German the grouping separator in the CLDR is given as period (".").

This contradicts the German standard DIN 5008 (which is also used by the "Duden", the dictionary of the German language), which says that a space letter should be used and periods (or similar characters) may be only as thousand separator in currencies for "security reasons".

As the DIN definitions are not freely available, I can only directly link to the relevant part from the "Duden"

According to DIN the \u2009 (thin space) should be used as a group character, not the common space character.

Sorry for the imprecise definition given above.
