PHP and different CSS class on comas inside string of numbers

Hi all.

I am in need of expert help with PHP and CSS. I am trying to create a count ticker with a different css class assigned to the coma in a number string. The number string get pulled from my database.

For example, my number is 11,229,228 how could I have PHP apply different css class to each individual digit and each individual coma.

The finished code should look like this:

<div style="float:left">
<div class="number">1</div>
<div class="number">1</div>
<div class="coma">,</div>
<div class="number">2</div>
<div class="number">2</div>
<div class="number">9</div>
<div class="coma">,</div>
<div class="number">2</div>
<div class="number">2</div>
<div class="number">8</div>
</div>

I have tried to preg_replace(); option, but do not seem to get my head around to make it work.

This work :

<?php

$str = '11,229,228';
$chars = preg_split('//', $str, -1, PREG_SPLIT_NO_EMPTY);

echo '<div style="float:left">';

foreach ($chars as $char) {

	if(is_numeric($char))
	{	
	echo "<div class=\"number\">$char</div>";
	}

	if($char==",")
