Hi:

I was wondering what the best way was to handle number formatting in HTM5/CSS3.
Our website will be released in multiple countries with different currency/date formats.

I would like to find a way to handle formatting on both input fields and text  display in the cleanest implementation possible. I don't know if that needs to be done with jquery, javascript, CSS3 or sum combination there of.

Is there a good design pattern or best practice that should be used here?

Thanks,
JohnB

Which countries?  Generally you should be doing it on the server side, based on the country that is the source of the page request.
